9780030742224: Major Principles of Media Law 1991

Major Principles of Media Law now in its eleventh edition, is a concise summary of the basic concepts and most important court decisions in communications law. The text is written by a former communications attorney having 32 years experience as a communications law professor. This media law textbook is revised every year to incorporate -- in time for fall classes -- developments up to the end of the Supreme Court's term in July of the current-edition year. The text covers not only the latest court decisions, but also the year's major regulatory and legislative developments. Some competing textbooks include an annual supplement, which forces students to read outdated material in the main textbook and later unlearn it when they read about the new developments in the supplement. Unlike those textbooks, Major Principles of Media Law includes the latest developments in the text itself, with outdated material from previous years deleted with each new edition.

About the Author:

Wayne Overbeck is Professor of Communications, Emeritus, at California State University, Fullerton. Professor Overbeck earned his Ph.D. at UCLA and his J.D. at Loyola Law School. He passed the California bar exam in 1975. In the years since, he has practiced law in California and Washington, D.C. but always wanted to return to college teaching and writing. With over 35 years of teaching experience and his years as a practicing attorney, he continues to be an expert in the field of media law and brings that experience to each edition of MAJOR PRINCIPLES OF MEDIA LAW. Dr. Overbeck has also written several other books and taught on other campuses.

Genelle Belmas received her Ph.D. in mass communications from the University of Minnesota in 2002 with an emphasis in media law. Her dissertation examined then-emerging issues in the areas of libel, hate speech, and pornography law as applied to the Internet. She has taught media law for more than 10 years to thousands of students. Her research interests include flag display and desecration law, indecency regulation, intellectual property, scholastic journalism issues, and the connection between media ethics and law. Her research has appeared in journals such as Communications Law and Policy, Federal Communications Law Journal, and the South Carolina Law Review. She is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists and the American Bar Association, in which she participates in the communications law and intellectual property sections.
