The digital revolution combined with converging technologies have contributed to transforming the economics of information and accelerating the globalization of the media and its contents. This report draws up a worldwide picture of these changes by describing the impact of the new information technologies on the workplace, the media (print and audiovisual), culture and intellectual property. It also examines the relationships between power, information and democracy, providing a better understanding of the new challenges facing communications.
