              The Internet has transformed the ways in which we communicate and disseminate information. The Internet has helped to further the aims of journalism and been a friend to the media. But journalistic activities and other conduct on the Internet have led to policy rethinking and leg...al reforms that impact on media practices and freedoms. This book explores the media law and policy reforms that have taken place in the Internet age and examines the processes of reform. The book concentrates on three areas of reform of international significance: defamation law, regulation of the media and Internet, and national security laws. All of the authors are pre-eminent legal practitioners or scholars from the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, the United States, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, Philippines, Switzerland and China. Most are the leading practitioners on media law in their jurisdictions.

              As a special administrative region of China, Hong Kong has its own legal system rooted in the common law. Reforms to this system take into account Hong Kong's unique conditions as an international city and draw widely on practices around the world. Since 1980 recommendations from... a Law Reform Commission, chaired by the Secretary for Justice, have resulted in comprehensive revisions in key areas of law, ranging from commercial arbitration and interception of communications to divorce and copyright. Recently, however, the government has been slow to act on the Commission's recommendations. Questions have also arisen about whether the Commission -- under-resourced, part-time, and government-led -- can really meet the needs of an increasingly sophisticated society. Is law reform itself also in need of reform? This collection of essays by distinguished experts from around the world seeks answers to the question. The book explores the varied experience of law reform in Hong Kong and other common law jurisdictions and makes recommendations for strengthening the process of law reform both in Hong Kong and elsewhere.

              The Internet brings opportunity and peril for media freedom and freedom of expression. It enables new forms of publication and extends the reach of traditional publishers, but its power increases the potential damage of harmful speech and invites state regulation and censorship a...s well as manipulation by private and commercial interests. In jurisdictions around the world, courts, lawmakers and regulators grapple with these contradictions and challenges in different ways with different goals in mind. The media law reforms they are adopting or considering contain crucial lessons for those forming their own responses or who seek to understand how technology is driving such rapid change in how information and opinion are distributed or restricted. In this book, many of the world's leading authorities examine the emerging landscape of reform in nations with variable political and legal contexts. They analyse developments particularly through the prisms of defamation and media regulation, but also explore the impact of technology on privacy law and national security. Whether as jurists, lawmakers, legal practitioners or scholars, they are at the front lines of a story of epic change in how and why the Internet is changing the nature and raising the stakes of 21st century communication and expression.
