Current through the most recent Supreme Court term, MAJOR PRINCIPLES OF MEDIA LAW, 2017, delivers a comprehensive summary of the latest additions, changes, and developments in communication law. This authoritative resource fully integrates recent developments through July 1 -- the end of the Court's 2015-16 term -- and is available in August for fall classes. Drawing from the authors' experience and expertise in both the courtroom and the classroom, the text focuses on the issues most important to media law. "Focus On" sidebars enable you to explore key legal issues in more depth, and end-of-chapter "What should I know about my state?" features highlight issues from your home state. In addition, in-margin definitions of glossary terms make even the most complex topics easy to understand.
