About Media Law in Ireland
Tackling a subject of considerable social and cultural significance, Media Law in Ireland offers a comprehensive overview of one of the most dynamic and rapidly changing areas of Irish law. Radical new legislation on privacy and defamation, together with the increased European regulation of media affairs, has created a much altered environment for media organisations. Technological innovations, like the internet, the message board and the citizen journalist, pose further problems for the law's traditional understanding of media matters. Examining these developments in an authoritative yet accessible way, this timely publication will be of enormous value to students, practitioners and media employees alike.
