The advance of the global media, whether by satellite, wire or Internet, has created unprecedented opportunities for publishers and journalists. But international publishing is a legal quagmire, especially the law of libel. This books charts a way through the problems international journalists can face, and reconciles some of the different laws affecting what they write. It explains and compares the law in eight countries - the United States, France, Germany, India, Japan, Australia, England and Wales, and Canada with contributions from leading lawyers in each country. There are also two general chapters - a comparative chapter on libel laws and a chapter on risk management tackling the practical daily problems which beset journalists and other writers.
