In the fast-changing world of the media the role of the law is growing ever more important. In response to a bewildering range of technological innovation as well as to perennial concerns (such as freedom of the press) the media lawyer is called upon to handle increasingly complex issues. Lawyers have a vital role in negotiating contracts and licences, litigating in the event of disputes, ensuring the effective protection of intellectual property rights and advising on often novel questions concerning competition, regulation, and international cross-border disputes. This highly complex field had not been well served by legal literature; the Year Book remedied that omission. It answers the needs of professionals in the field while also making a significant contribution to media law as an area of serious academic study. The central feature of the Yearbook is the annual surveys prepared by expert practising lawyers. Covering all issues from libel, contempt of court, music contracts, new technology, competition, regulation, and copyright, the surveys contain considered and thorough analysis of the most recent developments in the UK, the EC, and beyond. In a global industry, this comparative and international approach is vital. In addition, each edition of the Yearbook contains specially commissioned articles on subjects of particular topicality. A further feature is the review of recent publications which provides a valuable check for those wishing to verify their current awareness of developments in the field. Edited by the countrys leading academic media lawyer and ably assisted by two of the best known practitioners in the field, the Yearbook is well-established as an indispensable part of every media lawyers library.
