The new edition of this popular title provides a thorough analysis of the disparate laws that impinge on journalists' and broadcasters' rights to publish. It supplies clear guidance on the laws that affect the rights of the entire range media professionals: journalists, broadcasters, authors, Internet providers, editors, dramatists, film makers, photographers, website owners, producers and others who publish news or views through the media.

It is a one-stop source, from copyright to confidentiality to broadcasting, blasphemy and contempt of court. The authors explain the ongoing effects of the Human Rights Act 1998 on every aspect of media law, and analyse the impact on journalists and broadcasters of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Commentary on important cases, such as Douglas v Hello and BHB v William Hill, is also provided, as are chapters on reporting the courts, Whitehall, Parliament, local government and business. Written by two eminent media barristers, this new edition provides authoritative and extensive coverage of all areas of media law, cutting out the need to go to further sources.
