Media Law

No area of law is changing and developing quite so rapidly as media law.

Constant technological developments mean that the traditional areas of media law, such as press and publishing, broadcasting (including radio and television) and music and film, continually face new challenges. In particular the law surrounding “new media” has modified the traditional parameters and flexibility and drive are demanded of all involved in the industry.
