What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"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, Associate Professor, 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, Jonathan Marshall First Amendment Chair Professor, University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication

 "The 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
