Media Law Masterclass

Media Law Masterclass
Monday, October 28, 2019

Anyone who publishes online or on social media platforms needs to follow laws in the same way that traditional media such as newspapers, TV, radio and magazines do. People have ended up in jail or with expensive legal bills due to a short Tweet or Facebook post. Ensure you are safe online with this easy-to-understand course which will cover:

- Who gets anonymity?
- Contempt – the right to a fair trial
- Libel and defamation defences
- Moderating readers’ comments
- Privacy
- Copyright
- Getting consent to publish

This session includes a wealth of real-life examples and an opportunity to discuss your own concerns about your platforms. Ideal for beginners wanting to learn the basics, or for those who wish to refresh their media law knowledge.
