This book isolates the themes of privacy, freedom of thought, conscience, religion, expression, assembly and association in light of the Human Rights Act 1998. Each theme is presented and discussed with specific reference to media and entertainment lawyers, for whom the law on these areas is of extreme importance and yet is still unclear.

The work includes detailed coverage of new case law emerging in this area, and compares the treatment of the UK position with other jurisdictions.

  • Provides specialist treatment of the impact of the Human Rights Act on media law
  • Includes in-depth analysis of the new rights incorporated in the Act from Articles 8, 9 and 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights
  • Examines the developing conflict between privacy and freedom of information.
