Media and Entertainment Law presents a contemporary analysis of the law relating to the media and entertainment industry both in terms of its practical application and its theoretical framework. It provides a clear, current and comprehensive account of this exciting subject.

Fully updated and revised, this second edition is one of the first texts to contain a full analysis of the Leveson Inquiry and the implications for our press and media that are arising from it. The new edition contains; a new chapter analysing the Defamation Act 2013; the Digital Economy Act 2010 which aimed to toughen up against copyright infringement online and has been subject to parliamentary review since coming into power; and the liability of internet service providers, including recent cases such as Tamiz vs Google 2012, which goes some way to define the extent to which an ISP may or may not be found liable for their bloggers content.

With integrated coverage of Scots and Northern Irish law, Media and Entertainment Law also highlights comparisons with similar overseas jurisdictions, such as with the liability of ISPs where there are differences in both US and European law, in order to help students demonstrate an awareness of media laws, which may then influence UK legislation.

Looking at key aspects such as TV and radio broadcasting, the print press, the music industry, online news and entertainment and social networking sites, this text provides detailed coverage of the key principles, cases and legislation as well as a critical analysis of regulatory bodies such as OFCOM and the new regulator for the UK's newspapers and magazines (and online editions), the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso). The text also provides the most comprehensive and up to date coverage of the law relating to Intellectual Property law for the entertainment industry with recent changes in EU law relating to performers' rights.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The importance of this book should not be underestimated. Its timing alone is impeccable. With the medium of the internet and social media, we have all become world citizens, with responsibilities for what we communicate. A major contribution to that knowledge is provided by the data and discussion in the chapters of this book. Here is a work which all of us, not just the lawyers, would do well to digest in order to assess and analyze the challenges we face at every stage of everyday life. This book is not some esoteric or arcane legal backwater, but the frontline or interface of our social relationships. It charts and pin points with alarming accuracy the shape of current dilemmas". Michael Mansfield QC.

"This book is a leader in the media law market place, focussing, inter alia, on superinjunctions and the Defamation Act 2013, explaining the single publication rule well. It highlights privacy rights of children, independent of their parents. The book also focuses on Scots law and useful cases north of the border." Mark Stephens CBE, Media Lawyer.

"My colleagues in the entertainment industry are very excited by this book and find it a handy reference guide on recent copyright legislation." Lorna Aizlewood, Music and Intellectual Property Lawyer.

"This book by Ursula Smartt, one of the latest publications from Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, is a masterly coverage of just about every conceivable aspect of media and entertainment law" - Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
