This market-leading text discusses the most relevant mass media legal decisions, from the Constitution to the most recent Supreme Court sessions, in relation to their relevance to modern American law. From the Internet to political advertising laws, "Mass Media Law" examines the current issues that are shaping the United States legal system. Known for its clear explanations and its consistent pedagogy, the text includes mid-chapter summaries, a table of cases, a separate additional table of contents for Internet related cases and issues, and more. The new edition has been heavily revised to include many new cases, and updated coverage of important current media law concerns, including the right of reporters to protect their sources, censorship problems related to terrorism, file sharing and the law of privacy and ethics.
