International Libel and Privacy Handbook features:
• Nation-by-nation summaries of libel and privacy law written by local practitioners in an easy-to-use reference format
• Clear, concise explanations of the risks you may face from publication and steps you can take to avoid legal conflicts
• 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
• Updates on all major media markets and nations, along with coverage of changes in libel laws in key jurisdictions, including Australia, the UK, Hungary and Germany
While the bulk of its coverage is devoted to providing the straight facts about the media laws of more than thirty nations, worldwide, this book's overriding purpose is to help you avoid libel suits rather than fighting a suit once one has been filed against you. To that end, each author provides an analytical framework for reviewing your practices in light of the fundamental moral philosophy, political history, cultural biases and economic structures informing his or her nation's media and privacy laws.
