Digitization of Information
Digitization is the representation of an object, image, sound, document or a signal by a discrete set of points or samples. The result is called digital representation. Strictly speaking, digitizing means simply capturing an analog signal in digital form.

Deregulation is designed to end a certain type of monopoly to help...
