This edition provides students with the intellectual tools they will need to resolve legal issues arising from the ongoing dramatic reshaping of the media. It includes new material on matters such as anonymity and foreign law which have become more urgent because of the transformation of media industries. It covers the established precedents whose fundamental principles will guide the law's response to new threats of censorship, examines barriers to newsgathering, and explores impediments to media adaptability. This edition refines and streamlines the materials of previous editions to give students an uncluttered view of the current state of media law. Cumulatively, the co-authors have taught media law for nearly 100 years, and this edition reflects the pedagogical insights gleaned from that experience.
Surveys the major areas of mass media law, concentrating on the journalistic aspects of print and electronic media. Cases reflect current media law, and deal with First Amendment theory as applied to media; civil liability of media; newsgathering and the role of state constitutions, statues, and court rules in access to meetings and records; and regulatory and technological aspects of media law which apply specifically to broadcasting and electronic media, such as signal carriage rules, copyright, and content regulation.
