Description - Legal and Ethical Issues in the Media by Timothy Dwyer

We live in a world of proliferating media devices, social media usage, media convergence and mobility. In a culturally diverse world, the globalisation of media calls for a comparative understanding of the legal and ethical issues that are confronting the user and the practitioner in his unique social context. 'Legal and Ethical Issues in the Media' offers a concise and much-needed discussion of the social issues and ramifications of media interaction around the world. Using different national examples, and an accessible style, Dwyer explores key frameworks and concepts that will engage and challenge the contemporary reader's ideas about media practice.

Legal and Ethical Issues in the Media foregrounds the rapidly changing media and communications industries and offers:

- Accessible and contemporary discussion of key ethical and legal concepts for the student beginning his or her media career

- Overviews of crucial ethical frameworks for understanding responsible media practice

- Comparisons of international legal and media systems

- Key examples of traditional and new media

- Brief summaries of complex areas of media law, regulation and policy
