Praised for its clear and concise discussions of major media law cases, Media Law retains its well-balanced blend of case studies/analysis, and narrative. The fourth edition reflects the dramatic events that have occurred in the communication industry: The Telecommunications Act of 1996, new efforts at libel law reform, and that first sign cyberspace maturity--litigation. In addition, chapters have been updated and restructured to include more information in the areas of libel, obscenity, and the Internet.
