This book differs from others on media law by emphasising the increasingly important regulatory and European aspects, giving less prominence to more traditional common law topics. The authors adopt a comparative approach, drawing upon material from the USA and Commonwealth jurisdictions, as well as examining relevant aspects of Human Rights law.

The commentary provided is comprehensive and critical, introducing students to the wide range of technical and policy questions which are posed in the field of media law. The commentary includes reflective questions for students.

  • First cases and materials book available on media law.
  • Extract from and comments on regulatory materials of increasing importance on media ownership and control.
  • Professor Eric Barendt is one of the UK's leading authorities in media law.
