Book Summary :

Media and Entertainment Law presents a contemporary analysis of the law relating to the media and entertainment industry both in terms of its practical application and its theoretical framework. It provides a clear, current and comprehensive account of this exciting subject. Fully updated and revised, this second edition is one of the first texts to contain a full analysis of the Leveson Inquiry and the implications for our press and media that are arising from it. The new edition contains; a new chapter analysing the Defamation Act 2013; the Digital Economy Act 2010 which aimed to toughen up against copyright infringement online and has been subject to parliamentary review since coming into power; and the liability of internet service providers, including recent cases such as Tamiz vs Google 2012, which goes some way to define the extent to which an ISP may or may not be found liable for their bloggers content. With integrated coverage of Scots and Northern Irish law, Media and Entertainment Law also highlights comparisons with similar overseas jurisdictions, such as with the liability of ISPs where there are differences in both US and European law, in order to help students demonstrate an awareness of media laws, which may then influence UK legislation. Looking at key aspects such as TV and radio broadcasting, the print press, the music industry, online news and entertainment and social networking sites, this text provides detailed coverage of the key principles, cases and legislation as well as a critical analysis of regulatory bodies such as OFCOM and the new regulator for the UK's newspapers and magazines (and online editions), the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso). The text also provides the most comprehensive and up to date coverage of the law relating to Intellectual Property law for the entertainment industry with recent changes in EU law relating to performers' rights.

Book Summary :

China’s protection of intellectual property is one of the key concerns of foreign companies doing business in the Chinese media industry. This Intellectual Property guide analyzes the recent development of China’s young, but increasingly comprehensive, intellectual property regime, with a focus on copyright protection for various types of media works. Key issues addressed include registration procedures, types of works that can be protected, scope of rights, enforcement of rights and infringement penalties. This guide includes the full text of key regulations in English, as translated by TransAsia Lawyers. Written by experienced lawyers with over two decades of experience and endorsed by Chinese government officials, this guide is a vital-source for firms and individuals interested in the development of intellectual property in China. The international media and entertainment industry has been able to flourish under the legal protections conferred by copyright and other intellectual property rights. In contrast, the concept of intellectual property was foreign to China's domestic industries until the 1990s. China's intellectual property protection regime is modeled in part on international treaties and foreign legislation, and yet is tailored to address China's unique culture and political structure. With the rapid development of domestic creative industries, the logical and ideal expectation is that the degree of copyright law enforcement will increase in order to safeguard the interests of copyright owners in China, both foreign and Chinese alike. However, the piracy rate for DVDs, CDs and other audiovisual products in China remains high; and pirated music and movies are endemic on the Internet. While the Chinese government has done a commendable job putting the foundations for a robust intellectual property regime in place, the actual enforcement of intellectual property legislation remains a concern. This guide provides analysis on the copyright legislations and the types of rights protected (such as authors, broadcasters, performers, producers, collective rights management and the internet), the exceptions to those rights, copyright ownership and transfer, and unprotected subject matters. Intellectual Property is part of the China’s Media & Entertainment Law series, the first and only authoritative guide on the media and entertainment industry in China. The series is endorsed by China’s State Administration of Radio, Film & Television, and supported by the State Administration for Industry & Commerce, the General Administration of Press & Publication and the PRC Ministry of Culture. This guide includes an online access to download the original Chinese texts of key regulations, along with additional content such as updated regulations, TransAsia news flashes and translations of PRC government policies.

Book Summary :

Television in China is a great source of both opportunity and frustration for interested parties, particularly foreign investors seeking access to the domestic Chinese market. This Television guide provides an overview of the current legal environment of the television industry in China, setting out the core principles behind the rules and regulations, key administrative bodies and procedures governing the industry, and also includes the full text of key regulations in English, as translated by TransAsia Lawyers. Written by experienced lawyers with over two decades of experience in the industry, this guide is a must-read for industry professionals, lawyers, academics and government agencies alike. Four principal, long-term policies pervade the regulatory framework for the PRC television industry: censorship and content control, industry consolidation, technological advancement, and the dissemination of Chinese culture abroad. Despite the Chinese government’s desire to develop its own presence internationally, foreign participation in the domestic television industry is not encouraged and many restrictions persist on both market entry and participation. However, with the rise of the internet, digital television and other new media platforms, opportunities exist for foreign companies, especially those that are able to offer advanced technology to enhance industry development. As television is still the largest media sector in China in terms of both reach and influence, it is crucial to understand how policies are implemented, and the opportunities and challenges the industry presents. This guide provides analysis on how laws are implemented and applied in various sectors (such as cable, digital, satellite, video-on-demand and broadcasting) and across various formats (such as TV dramas and Animations). This Television guide is part of the China’s Media & Entertainment Law series, the first and only authoritative guide on the media and entertainment industry in China. The series is endorsed by China’s State Administration of Radio, Film & Television, and supported by the State Administration for Industry & Commerce, the General Administration of Press & Publication and the PRC Ministry of Culture. This guide includes an online access code to download the original Chinese texts of key regulations, along with additional content such as updated regulations, TransAsia news flashes and translations of PRC government policies.
