About the Authors
  • Defamation and privacy are now two central issues in media law. While defamation law has long posed concerns for media publications, the emergence of privacy as a legal challenge has been relatively recent in many common law jurisdictions outside the US. A number of jurisdictions have seen recent defamation and privacy law reforms, which have often drawn on, or reacted against, developments elsewhere. This timely book examines topical issues in defamation and privacy law focused on media, journalism and contemporary communication. Aimed at a wide legal audience, it brings together leading and emerging analysts of media law to address current and proposed reforms and the impact of changes in communication environments, and to re-examine basic principles such as harm and free speech. This book will be of interest to all those working on commonwealth or US law, as well as comparative scholars from wider jurisdictions.

    • Examines topical issues in defamation and privacy law focused on media and journalism in a range of common law jurisdictions
    • Analyses recent defamation law reforms and privacy law developments, and how these have been influenced by developments in other jurisdictions
    • Explores the relationship between defamation and privacy law across jurisdictions and the key issues raised
