More Details..

Billions of minutes a month are spent globally on social media. This raises not only serious legal issues, but also, has a clear impact on everyday commercial activity.

This unique book is the first to consider the significant legal developments that have arisen due to social media. The author provides an expert explanation of the issues that practitioners and businesses need to consider, and which special measures are required in order to minimise their exposure to risk. This book is highly practical, and not only explores the law related to social media, but also provides the reader with useful aids, such as flow charts, checklists and case studies.

The book explains the various categories and channels of social media and the legal classification of social networks. The book considers social media in the context of human rights law and the implications this has had upon the development of the civil and criminal law when pursuing a civil remedy or criminal prosecution in relation to online speech. The book covers the Defamation Act 2013, the Communications Act 2003, the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and the Contempt of Court Act 1988 among other key issues such as seeking Injunctions and the privacy implications this raises.

The author also pays careful consideration to the commercial aspects raised by social media, and the reader will find discussions by reference to key cases, regulatory guidance notes and statutes of the issues arising under the Data Protection Act 1998 (including the draft Data Protection Regulation), user Privacy, Human Rights, Trading and Advertising Standards, the special rules for FCA Regulated Bodies and Social Media Insurance.

This book will be an invaluable guide for private practice and in-house practitioners, business professionals, academics and post-graduate students.

Many of us are being misled. Claiming to know dark secrets about public officials, hidden causes of the current economic situation, and nefarious plans and plots, those who spread rumors know precisely what they are doing. And in the era of social media and the Internet, they know a lot about how to manipulate the mechanics of false rumors--social cascades, group polarization, and biased assimilation. They also know that the presumed correctives--publishing balanced information, issuing corrections, and trusting the marketplace of ideas--do not always work. All of us are vulnerable.

In On Rumors, Cass Sunstein uses examples from the real world and from behavioral studies to explain why certain rumors spread like wildfire, what their consequences are, and what we can do to avoid being misled. In a new afterword, he revisits his arguments in light of his time working in the Obama administration.

America's preeminent First Amendment lawyer speaks out on the most controversial free-speech issues of our time

Since 1971, when the Pentagon Papers were leaked to the New York Times and furious debate over First Amendment rights ensued, free-speech cases have emerged in rapid succession. Floyd Abrams has been on the front lines of nearly every one of these major cases, which is also to say that, more than any other person, he has forged this country’s legal understanding of free speech. Litigating everything from national-security and prior-restraint issues to controversies concerning the law of libel and attempts by local officials to censor art, Abrams has worked devotedly to protect the First Amendment, the “crown jewel” of America’s Constitution.
 
This collection of Abrams’s writings gathers speeches, articles, debates, briefs, oral arguments, and testimony from his entire career. The writings illuminate topics of ongoing import: WikiLeaks, the correctness of the Citizens United case, journalist shield laws, and, not least, the responsibilities of the press. An exceptional writer and a brilliant thinker, Abrams offers a unique perspective on the First Amendment and the unparalleled rights it confers.

Do the dead have rights? In a persuasive argument, Don Herzog makes the case that the deceased’s interests should be protected

This is a delightfully deceptive works that start out with a simple, seemingly arcane question—can you libel or slander the dead?—and develops it outward, tackling larger and larger implications, until it ends up straddling the borders between law, culture, philosophy, and the meaning of life. A full answer to this question requires legal scholar Don Herzog to consider what tort law is actually designed to protect, what differences death makes—and what differences it doesn’t—and why we value what we value. Herzog is one of those rare scholarly writers who can make the most abstract argument compelling and entertaining.

More Details..

This book undertakes a comparative study of the public interest and political speech defences in defamation law, particularly from the perspective of the misuse of democratic free expression justifications. Specifically, it argues that the law and legal approaches taken by leading courts and legislatures in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States five common law comparators are undertheorised, lack adequate criteria for determining the correct form of the defence, and would benefit from a more precise understanding of 'democracy', 'accountability', and 'representation'. The book will be of great interest to scholars of free speech, defamation and public law.
