Written by a specialist team of academics, judges and practising lawyers from the UK and abroad under the editorial direction of Dr Nicole Moreham and Sir Mark Warby, The Law of Privacy and the Media gives expert guidance for practitioners working on cases relating to privacy and the media,and will be of value to academics with an interest in this field. The first two editions of this book quickly established themselves as the leading reference works on the rapidly developing law of privacy in England and Wales. They have been frequently referred to in argument in privacy cases, and extracts have been cited with approval in judgments of the HighCourt and Courts of Appeal. Following the Leveson Inquiry, the laws and regulations governing the English media have come under intense scrutiny. This work has been revised and updated to incorporate discussion of both those debates and the continually changing landscape of privacy protection. The book offers an overview of English media privacy law, outlining key legislation and legal rules. It includes comparative perspectives and addresses current debates about the form and scope of modern privacy protection. The Law of Privacy and the Media provides detailed but accessible chapterson the various forms of wrongful publication of personal information, as well as the various forms of intrusion into physical privacy, before considering the available justifications and defences, the remedies and the procedure to be followed in such cases. This edition includes a new chapter givingseparate consideration to new media. The Law of Privacy and the Media is essential reading for all those who act for or against the media or who have a general interest in the subject.
