Digital Media Law 2nd ed is an invaluable resource for the latest legal considerations affecting media in today's increasingly digitized world.
In the aftermath of our global shift to digital media, professional and nonprofessional communicators alike struggle to keep pace with legal developments related to intellectual property use, privacy rights, defamation, and freedom of expression. Reflecting the latest changes in this rapidly evolving field, Digital Media Law 2nd ed provides an essential guide to these critical issues and others surrounding contemporary media law.
The second edition has been entirely updated and expanded to include discussions of new protections for corporate political speech, student expression, advertising, video games, public video camera use, net neutrality, and eAccessibility.
It explains laws and regulations recently passed to address libel tourism, cyberstalking, sexting, and online privacy. New case studies describe conflicts over Wikileaks' posts of classified information, file sharing, music licensing, and the claims that social media sites assert over user-posted intellectual property.
Together, these updates expand on traditional communication law concepts, presented and illustrated using familiar examples drawn from contemporary digital media. Salient areas covered include First Amendment rights, information access and protection, telecommunications and Internet regulation, copyright, trademark, libel, privacy, commercial speech, jurisdiction, and choice of law.
An accompanying website providing updated case studies, court decisions, and a wealth of additional resources is available at www.digitalmedialaw.us.
