From fake news to foreign affairs, the media continues to be one of the dominating forces of modern life. Now in its second edition, Media Law in Ireland provides a comprehensive overview of one of the most dynamic and rapidly changing areas of the law.

The way in which people consume media has changed and developed immensely in recent years. New platforms, and new ways of creating and consuming content are revolutionising the way information is spread around the world. With each new platform comes a new set of challenges and complexities, as they break away from the traditional media model. Many of the cases developing in these areas have been high-profile, divisive, and controversial, from issues surrounding freedom of expression to the challenges of privacy in a digital age. This book will throw light on the formidable legal complexities involved in the new media in a clear and accessible manner.

This new edition covers many of the developments in the area in the eight years since it was originally published. Among the developments covered are: the Digital Switchover, the adoption of the EU electronic communications reform package, and the Consumer and Competition Protection Act 2014. This book will be ideal for solicitors and barristers who practice in the area of media law, as well as postgraduate students, and media professionals.

This book is included in Bloomsbury Professional's Intellectual Property and IT online service.
