The aim of this book is to analyse media law in relation to specific areas,both in terms of its practical application and its theoretical framework. Part 1 concentrates on the regulation of media content and is largely written from a pro media point of view. Its central tenet is how far does the English media enjoy freedom of expression and the way in which that impacts on how the media operates. It considers how the Human Rights Act 1998 impacts on the media. Part 2 moves on to look at the regulation of the media industries as a whole. Part 3 focuses on day to day transactions for the media. In particular it focuses on provisions from typical media agreements and aims to provide a context for the law which has been outlined in Parts 1 and 2. The structure of this book bridges the gap between a traditional textbook and practitioner work and provides a book which will be of interest to law degree and LPC students and practitioners.
