Development of information and communication technologies and their convergence have served as the basis for the introduction of novel forms of dissemination of media content in digital form. This has led to many positive developments, but has also created some new challenges. Protection of minors is one such challenge which requires adequate regulation by the legislators both on the national and supra-national level. This paper analyzes the regulatory framework for electronic media in the context of protection of minors in the Republic of Croatia. Authors approach this issue by analyzing the rules applicable to harmful content and those which regulate the protection of privacy and personal data of minors against the freedom of expression and media. It is argued that the current regulatory framework generally provides sufficient protection against harmful content; however, certain changes could prove useful and would improve the level of protection. Regarding the protection of privacy and personal data, authors argue that current rules contained in the Media Act and the Electronic Media Act provide for an adequate regulation on the normative level, and stress the importance of their interpretation according to the standards developed in the case law of the ECtHR.
