Law and the Media


As many of us may have read, it is often in the world of celebrity where law and the media clash. The high profile cases in which various film stars take the press to court over a cheeky photo or a degrading yet false comment have been a source of sensation in themselves.

In reality, law and the media go hand in hand on a daily basis and affect individuals, businesses and celebrities alike. Media is a vast legal world which regulates, restrains and protects the content we use and see everyday, such as sport, music, broadcast and the internet.

Many people are subject to certain intellectual property rights such as copyright law and the media they use could be the platform on which infringement will occur. For example, if you are a blogger who posts their own original work online, then you probably own the copyright in that work. If someone copies any part of what you write, that copyright has been infringed. And for those with businesses who depend on such intellectual property rights for their income, it goes without saying that infringement is a great concern.

Specialist media lawyers can help you protect your rights regardless of your legal knowledge, your use of the media or even your celebrity status, so look for a legal adviser who can work to your needs.
