This book is a reference guide for practitioners to the major legal and regulatory issues in the field, but could also be used as media law textbook for a course of academic study. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field.
Throughout the book, the authors cover the relevant aspects of law governing the media in its many forms, with an emphasis on the practical operation of the law in this sector. It not only discusses the theoretical basis of legal concepts such as defamation, but also analyses the application of the law in the high paced environment of daily newspapers, the changing reality of what constitutes "broadcasting", including the regulation of distribution channels, and the regualtion on material distributed via those channels, and examines the implications for defamation law of the online, borderless world.
