Abstract

THE OBJECT OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO ANALYSE THE EXPANSION OF HOME AND OFFICE INFORMATION SERVICES FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC AND THEIR RELATIVE FAILURE, STRESSING THE NECESSITY THAT THE DEMAND ASPECT BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT, WHICH INVOLVES A CONSIDERATION OF THE PRINCIPLES ON WHICH OUR SOCIETY IS BASED. THIS ANALYSIS HAS THREE DIMENSIONS : LEGAL, TECHNOLOGICAL AND FUTURE ORIENTED, EMPHASISING : SERVICES FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET : A DESCRIPTION AND CLASSIFICATION OF THE POSITION OF HOME AND OFFICE INFORMATION SERVICES; -AN EXAMINATION OF THE LEGAL PROBLEMS RELATING TO THE CREATION OR THE RUNNING OF SUCH SERVICES; SOLUTIONS TO CERTAIN OF THESE PROBLEMS THAT EMERGE FROM THE SPECIFIC REGULATIONS SURROUNDING THE PROVISION OF THESE SERVICES, IN PARTICULAR IN FRANCE, GREAT BRITAIN AND GERMANY. THIS REPORT PROPOSES A MORE FUTURE-ORIENTED VIEW ESTABLISHING A SET OF NORMS WHICH ARE LIKELY TO INFLUENCE USER DEMAND. THE NORMS PROPOSED DO NOT SIMPLY RELATE TO QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE OPERATION OF THE INFORMATION SERVICES THEMSELVES, BUT TAKE ACCOUNT OF THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THESE SERVICES FUNCTION : THE REGULATION OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE, THE ROLE OF THE STATE, THE STATUS OF THE PARTICIPANTS. BY WAY OF CONCLUSION, THE REPORT OUTLINES THE NORMATIVE ACTIONS WHICH THE EEC COULD TAKE TO CREATE A HARMONISED LEGAL ENVIRONMENT FOR THE USE OF HOME AND OFFICE INFORMATION SERVICES FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
