Magazine Law by Peter Mason

Book Description

Magazine Law is a comprehensive guide to the law for magazine journalists, editors and managers. Written by a barrister experienced in publishing and copyright law and a former magazine journalist and law lecturer, the book addresses the special needs of the magazine industry and explains the laws that regulate and seek to determine what journalists can and cannot publish, and how these laws are applied in everyday situations. Written specifically for all those in the magazine industry, as well as students of magazine journalism, the authors address issues which directly affect day to day practice. The legal and regulatory framework is illustrated with case studies and up-to-date examples of precedent setting cases. Topics covered include: * the legal process and the distinction between criminal and civil law * the role of the courts and reporting court procedure * defamation, fair-comment and libel * product testing and criticism * copyright and passing off * law for photographers, picture researchers and the use of illustrations * privacy and trespass * competition, lotteries and magazine promotion * sub-editing errors and inaccurate copy * ethical and professional issues facing journalists Codes of Practice published by the Press Complaints Commission and National Union of Journalists are set out in appendices, as are requirements for the award of a National Vocational Qualification in Periodical Journalism in Press Law and Ethics. A glossary of legal terms is included.

Books By Author Peter Mason

Rhinoceros and the Megatherium by Peter Mason Rhinoceros and the Megatherium, Hardback (January 2017)

How did Europeans three centuries apart respond to two mysterious beasts a living rhinoceros previously known only from ancient texts and a nameless monster's massive bones? Juan Pimentel shows that their reactions reflect deep cultural changes but also the enduring power of image and imagination to shape our understanding of the natural world.

Colossal by Peter Mason Colossal, Hardback (February 2013)

Peter Mason's book is an analysis of the colossal throughout history - the colossal in the sense both of scale and also as symbol, used particularly by European surrealists.

St Andrews Links by Peter Mason St Andrews Links, Hardback (July 2012)

Recognised the world over as the 'Home of Golf', St Andrews Links has borne witness to over 600 years of golfing history. That the game evolved and developed into its final form here has never been in question. This illustrated volume celebrates the history of golf's most important location.
