There are many books on media law and communication ethics, but today journalism and communication studies are being transformed by new media and communication convergence. This book tries to unravel the complication
and updates the curriculum on communication regulations. This book is designed keeping in mind the UGC Core Curriculum for the course Media Law and Ethics offered at the Masters Degree for students of Journalism, Mass Communication, Electronic Media, Public Relations and Advertising Studies in the Indian Universities.
Every journalist and journalism student - from the traditional print media to the modern convergent media - should know the legal and ethical aspects of publishing a story. There are two main aspects of media regulations: 1) media laws about the publication of a story which may relate to libel and defamation; and 2) media laws about permissible comments on legal proceedings which include contempt of court.
A journalist must also make ethical choices about each story apart from its possible legal implications. This book examines not only the laws governing the media but also ethical issues in everyday journalism. The chapters in the book have focused on the existing challenges in communication regulations and also throw light on the emerging ethical concerns in the global media environment.
