• Detailed descriptions of the legal defenses available to you in the event that a claim is filed against you or your company
• Expanded to include coverage of Latin America as well as the latest libel and privacy rulings
• All-new chapters devoted to emerging media markets—including Israel, Argentina, Jordan and others—as well as valuable updates to the Middle East section
