The purpose of this thesis work is to reveal and asses the legal regulation in the electronic communications sector, its interaction with other social regulatory models applicable in the electronic communications. Research studies of substantial scope in the field of legal regulation of electronic communications, especially in the Lithuanian language, which also discuss the situation present in Lithuania, in this modern, extremely rapidly changing and converging sector are very rare and highly valuable. Scientific analysis of legal regulation models of an individual electronic communications sector is a new legal phenomenon in Lithuania. The attempts are made in the dissertation to research genesis, peculiarities of the electronic communications sector, its legal regulation, prerequisites for its formation and demand for such regulation, as well as the purposes of the legal regulation of this sector; to analyse the models of the existing legal regulation of electronic communications; to analyse and systemise other applicable legal and other social regulatory modes of the electronic communications; to project prognostic models of legal regulation of electronic communications. The thesis distinguishes and contains a thorough research of the models of legal regulation of electronic communications and other social regulatory models applicable in electronic communications, their potential interaction, harmonisation and balance. The distinguished models are of great value for research of complex phenomena, such as regulation. The model of social - legal phenomenon allows to highlight and research interrelations and regularity that are not noticeable in reality. Purification and research of the legal and social regulation models of the electronic communications represent significant element of scientific cognition by themselves, which provides prerequisites for making profound summaries and conclusions; development and verification of the phenomenon model enable deeper analysis of the phenomenon itself, with which new research studies can be conducted. With the use of the prognostic model, the ex ante legal regulation in the electronic communications, considering growing competition, is suggested in the dissertation to be replaced with the ex post legal regulation, by reserving its application to regulation of those important social relations, in which “harsh” social conflict may occur (e.g. for legal regulation of the competition field), while for other social relations, strict legal regulation should be replaced with other social regulation models (co-regulation and self-regulation).
