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 Some competing textbooks include an annual supplement, which forces students to read outdated material in the main textbook and later unlearn it when they read about the new developments in the supplement. Unlike those textbooks, Major Principles of Media Law includes the latest developments in the text itself, with outdated material from previous years deleted with each new edition.

Wayne G. Overbeck is currently Professor of Communication Emeritus at California State University, Fullerton. Prior to coming to CSU-Fullerton, Professor Overbeck attended Loyola Law School, where he received his J.D. and went on to pass 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.
