Australian Media Law details and explains the complex case law, legislation and regulations governing media practice in areas as diverse as journalism, advertising, multimedia and broadcasting. It examines the issues affecting traditional forms of media such as television, radio, film and newspapers and includes discussion on modern forms such as the internet, social media and digital technology, in a clear and accessible format. Issues and topics that are new to the sixth edition include: Impending amendments to the uniform defamation legislation Responses to the phenomenon of fake news Revised foreign ownership regime Proposed new online safety legislation A new AANA Code of Ethics The telecommunications data regime and its impact on journalists and their sources An examination of recent decisions on free speech, defamation, confidentiality, negligence, advertising, vilification and contempt. The ACCC’s Digital Platform Inquiry has recommended a process to implement a harmonised media regulatory framework. As the Australian Government takes its first steps along this path, the sixth edition anticipates the shape of future reforms.
