"The second edition of Digital Media Law Is a welcome update to the field of media law in the U.S., especially for students and teachers who are keen to expand their horizons in the global 21st century."- Kyu Ho Youm, University of Oregon

"Ashley Packard's new edition of Digital Media Law keeps it on the cutting edge of Illuminating the subject in terms of digitalization and internationalization - the driving forces through which students today ever more instinctively understand their lives and their professions." - Robert L. Kerr, University of Oklahoma

"Ashley Packard's work on the second edition of Digital Media Law is impressive. The readable text keeps students engaged with recent cases; provides challenging discussion questions; and references Internet resources that encourage critical thinking about legal issues in today's converging media environment."- Nathaniel Frederick II, Winthrop University

Digital Media Law is an invaluable resource for the latest legal considerations affecting media in today's increasingly digitized world. In the aftermath of our global shift to digital media, professional and nonprofessional communicators alike struggle to keep pace with legal developments related to intellectual property use, privacy rights, defamation, and freedom of expression. Reflecting the latest changes in this rapidly evolving field, Digital Media Law provides an essential guide to these critical issues and others surrounding contemporary media law

The second edition has been entirely updated and expanded to Include discussions of new protections for corporate political speech, student expression, advertising, video games, public video camera use, net neutrality, and eAccessibillty. It explains laws and regulations recently passed to address libel tourism, cyberstalking, sexting, and online privacy. New case studies describe conflicts over WikiLeaks' posts of classified information, file sharing, music licensing, and the claims that social media sites assert over user-posted intellectual property

Together, these updates expand on traditional communication law concepts, presented and illustrated using familiar examples drawn from contemporary digital media. Salient areas covered include First Amendment rights. Information access and protection, telecommunications and Internet regulation, copyright, trademark, libel, privacy, commercial speech, jurisdiction, and choice of law
