Media Law and Regulation in the European Union: National, Transnational, and U.S. Perspectives
Media Regulation in the European Union presents an anthology of the most important laws and regulations affecting journalism and the media in the European Union. It also covers relevant decisions of the European Court of Human Rights. These laws are presented in historical, sociopolitical, and media contexts and are compared with their equivalent in the United States.
The book generally looks at national -- country-specific legislations -- and transnational -- European Union-wide regulations. Specifically, the book addresses constitutional press or expression provisions, personal protections, morality and security issues, access to information and secrecy. Considerable attention is paid to the regulation of broadcasting and to the rules governing those who own the media and those who help sustain them -- advertisers and the advertising industry. The book's last chapter discusses media self-regulation and includes the codes of ethics of the professional journalists' organizations of the EuropeanUnion member nations.
