The influence of E-ASEAN in the Development of ICT law in Malaysia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The growth of information communication technology in Malaysia was demonstrated with the launching of the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) in 1996. This fully supported mega project by the Malaysian Government is a gateway to the ICT industry in Malaysia with the objective to attract world class technology companies while preparing the local ICT industry. The companies that develop or use multimedia technologies to produce and enhance their products and services may be granted the MSC Malaysia status and be located in any 26 Cybercities and Cybercentres in Malaysia. The award of this MSC status comes with incentives, rights and privileges from the MSC Malaysia Bill of Guarantees. Amongst all is Malaysia assures to become a regional leader in intellectual property protection and cyber laws. As a member of e-ASEAN this assurance seems to go in line with the e-ASEAN emphasis of to adopt electronic commerce regulatory and legislative frameworks that create trust and confidence for consumers and facilitate the transformation of businesses towards the development of e-ASEAN. It is the objective of this paper to identify and analyse the extent of compliance of e-ASEAN by the Malaysian Government particularly in the legal and regulatory framework.
