Media law is a minefield - but a minefield through which all working in the media must find their way if freedom of speech is to remain a reality in Britain. This new edition of ""Media Law"" has been fully updated to cover all legal developments that affect journalists and broadcasters, including the Human Rights Act of 1998 and the Freedom of Information Act. There is exhaustive coverage of all major areas of media law, detailing the up-to-date position on defamation, obscenity, official secrecy, copyright and confidentiality, contempt of court and protection of privacy.

Later sections consider the rights of access to business and government information and the latest methods of challenging restrictions on court reporting. The regulation of films, video, theatre and advertising is also analyzed. Throughout this book, Geoffrey Robertson and Andrew Nicol give an expert assessment of media law and offer wise counsel as to how its many uncertainties are likely to be resolved in practice.
