Abstract:

"Providing the basic framework of the law and discussions focusing on the major cases in each area, Exploring Communication Law begins with material related to the First Amendment, then proceeds through the various topics derived from those freedoms, including libel, privacy, access to information, the media and the courts, broadcast regulation, intellectual property, and business communication. Conciseness and clear language are this text's strengths, as are its readability and engaging approach to teaching. Point-counterpoint essays, frequently asked questions, chapter glossaries, and case problems encourage students to take an active approach to learning and create a running dialogue with the reader."--Jacket.
