In a world where anyone can become a media producer, everyone should know something about media law - both to protect his or her own rights and to avoid violating the rights of others. Digital Media Law is the first media law text to respond to digitalization and globalization, the two most significant agents of change in the twenty-first century.
Designed to appeal to a broader audience of communication and digital media students, as well as journalism and law students, Digital Media Law covers salient issues from freedom of expression to commercial speech and information access. An accompanying website at digitalmedialaw.us provides updates on new rulings, access to slip opinions, and other supplementary material, and a section on legal research teaches students to find the law on their own. For students of both media and law, this book is a timely introduction to an important new field.
