In December the Russian government approved a plan to develop legislation on regulating the digital economy. The plan includes more than 50 packages of legislative measures designed to remove key barriers on the path to nationwide digitization. There are also plans for the simultaneous development of concept papers addressing how the Russian legal system as a whole can be transformed to make it more flexible in the context of an ever-changing world, and how to regulate the use of cross-cutting technologies on a systematic basis. Are all priority measures for developing the digital economy covered by the plan? What other regulatory issues need to be resolved with respect to the challenges posed by the digital economy? How can regulation be implemented in a changing environment, and how can the process of establishing regulations be made more dynamic? What alternative means and methods of regulation are needed?
