Overview

Providing practical and theoretical resources on media law and ethics for the UK and USA and referencing other legal jurisdictions such as France, Japan, India, China and Saudi Arabia, Comparative Media Law and Ethics is suitable for upper undergraduate and postgraduate study and for professionals in the media who need to work internationally.

The book focuses on the law of the United Kingdom, the source of common law, which has dominated the English-speaking world, and on the law of the USA, the most powerful cultural, economic, political and military power in the world. Media law and ethics have evolved differently in the USA from the UK. This book investigates why this is the case.

In one chapter Tim Crook considers other media law jurisdictions:

Common law

Civil law

Socialist law

Islamic law

A focus on India

A focus on France

A focus on China

A focus on Saudi Arabia

The biggest democracy in the world and the largest middle class

The influential founder of the European Union and host country for the ECHR at Strasbourg

The country with the highest economic growth and largest population

One of the most influential sources of legal religiosity

Tim Crook analyses media law, as it exists, the ethical debates concerning what the law ought to be, and the historical development of legal and regulatory controls of communication. Underlying concepts discussed include the subject of media jurisprudence - the study of the philosophy of media law; media ethicology - the study of the knowledge of ethics/morality in media communication; and media ethicism - the belief systems in the political context that influence journalistic conduct and content. Throughout, media law and regulation are evaluated in terms of their social and cultural context.

The book has a companion website - ma-radio.gold.ac.uk/cmle - providing complementary resources and updated developments on the topics explored. If you need to compare different law and ethics systems, are studying international journalism or want to understand the legalities of working in the media in different jurisdictions, then you should find this an important and useful guide.
