- Digital Convergence is the technology of integrating with the contents of communication, broadcast and information industries. This emerging industry has already caused changes in various industries, and it also brought the business opportunities which will improve the national competitive and advantage. This study aims to addresses the issue of industrial policy, though there exist many topics on digital convergence, such as society, infrastructure, and content. This study adopts method of comparative case study to perform an analysis of cross-country comparisons. The case is selected from the most representative ICT companies of US, UK, Japan, Korea, Mainland China and Taiwan. The findings are described as follows: each nation has worked hard to prevent confusion in competition. Moreover, each government has designated a major developmental project of digital convergence. The advanced countries have tried to make laws to regulate and protect intellectual properties. In developing countries, the government can better use the power of the nation to achieve value-adding objective of digital convergence. On the other hand, US and UK mostly adopt policies that allow enterprises and the market to operate and develop freely. China has the advantage of a huge consumer market. Finally, a thoughtful and quick-response industrial policy had better be developed.
