We live in a world of proliferating media devices, ever-increasing social media usage, media convergence and mobility. In a culturally diverse world, the globalisation of media calls for an understanding of the legal and ethical issues that are confronting the user and the practitioner in their unique social context. Using different national examples from around the world, Legal and Ethical Issues in the Media offers a much-needed discussion of contemporary social issues and ramifications of media interaction around the world. Tim Dwyer - Senior Lecturer in the Department of Media and Communications at the University of Sydney - explores key frameworks and concepts that will engage and challenge the reader's ideas about the legal and ethical issues surrounding media practice today. Written in a concise and accessible style, this book foregrounds the rapidly changing media and communications industries, and is essential reading for all media and communications students, researchers and practitioners. Legal and Ethical Issues in the Media offers: - Accessible and contemporary discussion of key ethical and legal concepts for the student beginning his or her media career - Overviews of crucial ethical frameworks for understanding responsible media practice - Comparisons of international legal and media systems - Key examples of traditional and new media - Brief summaries of complex areas of media law, regulation and policy
