The media and entertainment industry provides an interesting picture when it’s combined with the law. Due to current issues surfacing round ‘the way print media is regulated, to the ever-increasing problems now facing companies over the misuse of social media, this course aims to bring a structure to the way the media and entertainment world is constantly trying to coexist with the law. The law can be deemed to play catch up with society, one reason for this is due to the ever expansion of technological developments within the industry, an example could be seen with issues such as cybercrime and WikiLeaks all of which this course will be investigating. This course is designed to merge commercial practical components and the theoretical understanding of the way these two industries work.
