Social media enables instant access to individual self-expression and the sharing of information. However, social media issues are boundless, permeating distinct legal disciplines. The law has struggled to adapt and for good reason: how does the law regulate this medium over the public/private law divide?
This book engages with the legal implications of social media from both public and private law perspectives and outlines how the law, in various legal sub-disciplines and with varying success, has endeavored to adapt existing tools to social media. The expert contributors use a range of perspectives to investigate the intersection between law and social media and to provide insights into the challenges the legal community currently faces.
The book explores key topics such as public and private law implications, the gap between the lay and legal understandings of social media, the conflict of laws regarding social media, and the individual rights associated with social media. This timely study of a complex and ever-changing area of law will be of interest to legal scholars, students and practitioners as well as to those studying or researching media and journalism.
