In the age of digital media, journalists, authors and publishers, as well as the lawyers who serve them, know the rules around the world. The International Libel and Privacy Handbook, 2022-2023 Edition, is the indispensable go-to resource for media content providers wherever they are based. This fully updated and expanded edition of the critically acclaimed handbook gives you instant access to relevant libel and privacy laws and important legal rulings in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas, in a plain-language easy-to-read format. This handbook provides editors and their lawyers with quick answers to the most commonly-asked newsroom legal questions, provided by an all-star group of media law specialists from around the world.

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.

The 2020-2021 edition ISBN is 9781522196518.
