Praise for Ursula Smartt’ Media and Entertainment Law:
“The importance of this book should not be underestimated. Its timing alone is impeccable. With the medium of the internet and social media, we have all become world citizens, with responsibilities for what we communicate. A major contribution to that knowledge is provided by the data and discussion in the chapters of this book. Here is a work which all of us, not just the lawyers, would do well to digest in order to assess and analyze the challenges we face at every stage of everyday life. This book is not some esoteric or arcane legal backwater, but the frontline or interface of our social relationships. It charts and pin points with alarming accuracy the shape of current dilemmas”
Michael Mansfield QC, Mansfield Chambers UK
“This book is a leader in the media law market place, focussing, inter alia, on superinjunctions and the Defamation Act 2013, explaining the single publication rule well. It highlights privacy rights of children, independent of their parents. The book also focuses on Scots law and useful cases north of the border.”
Mark Stephens CBE, Media Lawyer
“My colleagues in the entertainment industry are very excited by this book and find it a handy reference guide on recent copyright legislation.”
Lorna Aizlewood, Music and Intellectual Property Lawyer
