Information laws are looked at as they operate with analogue media, and then with digital services. The changes in law are related to use patterns and a solution proposed to improve access. This requires the development of a legal equity of access to information. Conditions in which this would apply are outlined. The areas of law considered are intellectual property rights, rights relating to personal information, and law protecting against breaches of confidence.
