Overview

"I have never met Ashley Packard, but reading her Digital Media Law tells me she is someone whose work students will benefit tremendously from getting to know. Its relevance derives fundamentally from framing its subject in terms of digitalization and internationalization - the driving forces through which students today instinctively understand their lives and their professions."---Robert Kerr, University of Oklahoma" "A wonderfully readable book by an able media law scholar with a discerning eye for a range of real-life legal issues for the digital media. Most important, the book stands out for its refreshingly global outlook."Kyu Ho Youm, University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication" "This book examines established media law principles and new problems and issues, demonstrating both the continuity and adaptability of the law in a rapidly changing communication era."---Anthony L Fargo, Indiana University School of Journalism" "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.
