    Media and Entertainment Law presents a contemporary analysis of the law relating to the media and entertainment industries both in terms of its practical application and its theoretical framework, providing a broad and comprehensive coverage of this fast changing branches of the law.

    Fully restructured to compliment how media law is taught today in the digital age, this third edition explores recent updates in the law including the outcomes of the Google Spain case and the ‘right to be forgotten’, the use of drones in breach of privacy laws, internet libel and the boundaries of media freedom and press regulation, following the Leveson inquiry.

    Media & Entertainment Law uses the most up-to-date authorities to explore privacy and confidentiality subjects, such as the Prince Charles’ black spider letters, the Maximilian Schrems and the celebrity superinjunction PJS v Newsgroup Newspapers cases. The book also covers defamation, contempt of court and freedom of information, plus Scots law.

    New to this Edition:

    • A brand new chapter is dedicated to exploring technology and the media, including contemporary issues such as the dark web, the surveillance state, internet censorship and the law and social media, including bloggers, vloggers and tweeters.
    • The chapters on regulatory authorities have been expanded to provide greater clarification and explanation of broadcasting, press and advertising regulation, including the protection of journalistic sources and comparisons with EU Law.
    • The chapter on Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law has been streamlined to match media law courses more effectively.

  • "The importance of this book should not be underestimated. Its timing alone is impeccable. With the medium of the internet and social media, we have all become world citizens, with responsibilities for what we communicate. A major contribution to that knowledge is provided by the data and discussion in the chapters of this book. Here is a work which all of us, not just the lawyers, would do well to digest in order to assess and analyze the challenges we face at every stage of everyday life. This book is not some esoteric or arcane legal backwater, but the frontline or interface of our social relationships. It charts and pin points with alarming accuracy the shape of current dilemmas". Michael Mansfield QC.

    "This book is a leader in the media law market place, focussing, inter alia, on superinjunctions and the Defamation Act 2013, explaining the single publication rule well. It highlights privacy rights of children, independent of their parents. The book also focuses on Scots law and useful cases north of the border." Mark Stephens CBE, Media Lawyer.

    "My colleagues in the entertainment industry are very excited by this book and find it a handy reference guide on recent copyright legislation." Lorna Aizlewood, Music and Intellectual Property Lawyer.
