This current and comprehensive market-leading textbook addresses the most relevant and important aspects of mass media law in the United States, stretching from the history and adoption of the First Amendment to the most recent judicial opinions, statutory enactments and regulatory controversies affecting speech across the print, broadcast, cable and Internet media. From the laws of libel and privacy to the regulation of advertising and telecommunications, "Mass Media Law 2009/2010" examines timely issues that are shaping the United States' legal system and the future of media content. The new edition has been streamlined to include new opinions and updated coverage of important current media law concerns, including the right of reporters to protect their sources, censorship problems related to terrorism, file sharing, and the law of privacy.

Don R. Pember has a doctorate in mass communication law from the University of Wisconsin and is a Professor of Communications at the University of Washington. He is the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award and the Society of Professional Journalists’ Public Service Award.
