Media and entertainment law is a growing and rapidly changing area of law, governed by domestic legislation and challenged by emerging new media such as online news and publishing, blogs, twitter, reddit, and facebook. New Zealand Media and Entertainment Law provides a detailed analysis in a modern framework. The authors weave the intricacies of new media through established case law, legislation and principles while guiding legal and media professionals as they navigate the changing media landscape.

In addition to comprehensive analysis of traditional media law this treatise explores harmful digital communications, the impact of online publication on defamation, regulation of classic and modern media authorities and contempt in light of the Contempt of Court Report released by the Law Commission in June 2017.

This treatise is an essential research and reference tool written for practitioners and students of media law, media and advertising agencies, and other professionals who must stay ahead of media regulation.

Contributing author – Paul Sumpter.
