Presented at ASIST 2003 Annual Meeting -- Humanizing Information Technology: From Ideas to Bits and Back (ASIST AM 03 2003), Westin Long Beach, Long Beach, California, October 20 - 23, 2003


The convergence of computing and networking has enabled local and global transformations and affects the ways in which people live, work and learn; the way institutions operate, and raises new issues and challenges for governments. National and global initiatives have been undertaken to address the blurring of boundaries -geographical and political- made possible by these global networks and the electronic data transfer and interchange. The flow of electronic data and digital content across jurisdictional lines calls for novel -or updated- laws and regulatory solutions (e.g., data protection, privacy, content regulation, etc.). This panel offers a comparative analysis of national laws and policies regulating the transport of data across national boundaries, with a special focus on the implications for information dissemination and access.
