Media Law: Cases Materials and Commentary is an engaging and accessible introduction to the dynamic area of media law. It examines the basic principles of the substantive areas of law affecting the practice of contemporary media organisations including defamation, invasion of privacy and freedom of information. Using carefully selected excerpts from recent cases and legislation and insightful author commentary, this text explores important media law concepts and helps readers place these into both legal and cultural contexts.

The second edition discusses the levels of content regulation as applied to print, broadcast and online media and the sector-specific rules affecting ownership and control of media outlets. Media Law also incorporates critical perspectives from a range of academic disciplines including media and cultural studies to offer conceptual frameworks in which Australian media law can be understood and interpreted.
