Emerging Media: Virtual Issues, Legal Principles introduces contemporary media and information studies students to the nexus between law and emerging media technology. With a goal to present a clear and succinct overview of communication and media law, the text presents legal doctrines in accessible terms and in the context of current issues and technology.

Author Jason Zenor encourages students to think critically about the psychological, social, and political harms that communication technology can cause. Students are exposed to a myriad of current examples that reflect issues in today’s media environment, with legal analysis of how these issues could be resolved. Specific topical areas include censorship, false speech, privacy, civil liability, obscenity, identity rights, intellectual property, consumer protection, and market regulation. Each chapter concludes with a case study and discussion questions so students can apply the legal doctrine to a communication technology problem.

Emerging Media provides students with a timely and valuable focus on legal and policy issues attendant to new communication technologies.

Jason Zenor (J.D., University of South Dakota) is an associate professor in the School of Communication, Media and the Arts at Oswego State University of New York, where he teaches courses in media law, media industries, and media and politics. He has published research on a wide array of communication law topics including censorship, civil liability, commercial speech, copyright, false speech, government speech, obscenity, political speech, press access, and privacy.
