Overview

In the aftermath of the global shift to digital media, legal issues struggle to keep pace—in spite of frequent and ever-increasing updates. Reflecting the latest changes in this rapidly evolving field, the 2nd Edition of Digital Media Law provides an essential guide to the critical issues surrounding contemporary media law. Updates for the new edition include new rulings relating to corporate political speech, student speech, indecency and Net neutrality, restrictions on libel tourism, cases filed against U.S. information providers, WikiLeaks and shield laws, file sharing, privacy issues, sexting, cyber-stalking, and many others.

Numerous traditional communication law concepts are explained and illustrated using familiar examples drawn from contemporary digital media. Salient issues covered include freedom of expression, telecommunications and Internet law, jurisdiction and choice of law, intellectual property law, libel, privacy considerations, commercial speech, and information access. A wealth of additional resources are provided on an accompanying website which is continually updated with new case studies and court decisions.

Digital Media Law is an invaluable resource for the latest legal considerations affecting media in today’s increasingly globalized world.
