Medicine: general issues
The advance of the global media, whether by satellite, wire or Internet, has created unprecedented opportunities for publishers and journalists. The diversity of libel laws around the world makes international publishing a legal quagmire. This book charts a way through the problems international journalists face, and reconciles some of the different laws affecting what they write.
The International Libel Handbook explains and compares the law in eight countries with expert contributions from leading lawyers in each one. The countries covered are: Australia, Canada, England and Wales, France, Germany, India, Japan and United States of America.
Two general chapters, a comparative treatment of libel law and an invaluable chapter on risk management will help journalists and other professional writers tackle the practical problems which face them every day.
