ICLG: Telecoms, Media, and Internet Laws and Regulations 2020—Vietnam Chapter

Waewpen Piemwichai and Tu Ngoc Trinh, experts on technology, media, and telecommunications law in Tilleke & Gibbins’ Hanoi office, contributed the Vietnam chapter to the 13th edition of the International Comparative Legal Guide to: Telecoms, Media & Internet Laws & Regulations. This comprehensive guide provides readers with an in-depth look at the quickly changing legal landscape surrounding the rapidly growing industries encapsulated by telecommunication, media, and internet laws across 27 jurisdictions, including the hot topics of cybersecurity, data retention, and encryption.

As in other countries, the implications and applications of Vietnam’s laws impacting the dynamic and rapidly growing telecommunications, media, and internet sectors are developing rapidly. Cybersecurity, data retention, and encryption are all areas in Vietnam that have seen relatively recent changes in their regulatory landscape. The guide, to which Tilleke & Gibbins also contributed the Thailand chapter, provides detailed, country-specific information on these evolving legal frameworks and more in six unique sections:

  • Overview
  • Telecoms
  • Radio Spectrum
  • Cybersecurity, Interception, Encryption, and Data Retention
  • Distribution of Audio-Visual Media
  • Internet Infrastructure

The complete Vietnam chapter is available as a PDF below.

The Vietnam chapter was first published in the 2020 edition of the International Comparative Legal Guide to: Telecoms, Media & Internet Laws & Regulations  by the Global Legal Group.
