Summary/Abstract "Media Law provides a succinct and lucid introduction to all areas of the law relating to print, broadcast and electronic media. It is an ideal text for law undergraduates as well as for students studying media studies and journalism and all those working in the media world. Media lawyers have found past editions of this book invaluable as an introductory text." "In this new edition the contents have been re-ordered and certain topics are covered in greater depth. A new chapter on breach of confidence and privacy considers the rapid development of the body of caselaw concerning privacy of individuals. An expanded chapter on the internet considers the impact of this mass medium and the specific problems it poses because of its worldwide accessibility and frequently anonymous nature."--BOOK JACKET
