Montréal, September 22, 2010 — McCarthy Tétrault partner and regional leader of the firm’s technology practice in Montréal Charles S. Morgan has co-authored a revised and updated edition of Halsbury’s Laws of Canada — Communications. This book is a must-read for lawyers, judges, academics and the general public who need to increase their knowledge of the law governing this important Canadian industry. The recent market entry of new wireless telephony service providers such as Wind, Videotron and Public Mobile, as well as Bell Canada’s recent acquisition of CTV, demonstrate the communications sector’s current dynamism.

Co-authored with Sunny Handa, Richard Janda and Governor General Designate David Johnston, Halsbury’s Laws of Canada — Communications draws on the expertise of these leading Canadian authorities to provide a straightforward and comprehensive overview of this increasingly important field. It explains the latest regulatory developments in telecommunication, broadcasting and radiocommunications in Canada, as governed by statutes such as the Telecommunications Act, the Broadcasting Act and the Radiocommunication Act.

Mr. Morgan’s practice focuses on technology mergers & acquisitions, outsourcing, licensing, e-commerce, data protection and telecommunications. In addition to his work with leading Canadian broadcasters and telecommunications companies, Mr. Morgan’s international experience includes helping the regulatory authorities of several countries in Africa and the Gulf region address issues of market liberalization in the telecommunications sector.

Halsbury’s Laws of Canada — Communications is published by LexisNexis Canada. To purchase a copy, please visit the LexisNexis online bookstore.
