The IEL for Media Law offers a country-by-country survey of media law throughout the world. We describe the Finnish media landscape and analyse the laws governing press freedom, including those concerning access to information, defamation and privacy. We also outline the regulatory structures controlling print and electronic media (radio and television, but also new media, like online and mobile services) in these countries.
Legal acts, case law, as well as ethical codes used by journalists, are presented and analysed. Among the key issues to be covered are: digitalisation, convergence, the 'Information Society', cultural policy, freedom of speech, media concentration and pluralism, protection of minors, hate speech, the regulation of broadcasting and electronic communications markets, advertising rules, co- and self-regulation in online and mobile media, public service broadcasting, competition policy, access to digital gateways, standardisation and interoperability, liability of intermediaries. These issues are addressed by describing the relevant legal rules in a thematic, logical and concise manner from a practitioner's viewpoint, offering media lawyers, journalists, attorneys, judges, teachers, students and others concerned with media and communication freedom a practical tool to access existing media law in a certain jurisdiction.
