Descripció

This edition examines new forces influencing media law while continuing to focus on foundational cases and principles that have shaped the field since its inception. New material includes increasing government secrecy and its impact on freedom of information; the latest on net neutrality; new restrictions on newsgathering including legislation involving drones; recent jurisprudential tests that unmask anonymous internet speakers; increasing potential liability for internet re-publishers despite older legal protections; newer changes in copyright protections in the wake of internet publishing; increasing judicial concerns about privacy and the reshaping of legal determinations including newsworthiness; and the increasingly difficult-to-answer question of who deserves shield law and other legal protections traditionally reserved for journalists. The casebook, written by authors who collectively have taught and researched media law for more than a century, focuses on the legal precedents that help shape judicial and legislative responses to today's new media.
