Media and Entertainment Law has been purposely designed and written to keep the reader’s interest with up-to-date legal issues. Throughout the book, media and entertainment law ethics issues are discussed. A full chapter devoted to ethics is added with suggestions presented on how to make better ethical choices, how to guide ethical considerations, and how to potentially correct ethical issues that are not in alignment with corporate or business guidelines. Chapters are arranged in a thoughtful and logical order, to take the student, practitioner, or interested reader from the beginnings of freedom of speech, press, and expression; and into cutting edge, current events that highlight areas such as copyrights, advertising, pornography, censorship of the media, cable and satellite television, digital and satellite radio, and the Internet.
