Media and entertainment law is one of the fastest growing sectors of practice in the UK and European Community. Practising lawyers are hungry for information and informed analysis of the latest developments in this fast-moving field. This Yearbook spans the traditional concerns of medialawyers such as free speech and freedom of the press generally, including libel law and contempt of court as well as the core areas of entertainment law practice such as copyright, contracts, licensing and competition. In addition it covers the emerging fields of new technologies, the impact of themuch heralded `information highway' upon media law, the effects of European Community initiatives in this area and the ever changing subject of broadcasting regulation. The Yearbook consists of high-quality analytical articles, important annual surveys of developments in all these fields and reviewsof recent publications, all of which will be of interest to the practising and academic lawyer.
