Summary

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.
