Mass Communication Law in a Nutshell satisfies the need for a basic text in communication law, not only for law students but for journalism and communication students as well. Highlights of the Eighth Edition of the popular book include a discussion of Hulk Hogan’s successful lawsuit against Gawker for public disclosure of private facts, the right to be forgotten (or “erased”) in Europe, and numerous social media issues, including cyberstalking, catfishing, trolling, doxing, swatting, posting threats on Facebook and access to President Trump’s tweets. Further highlights include the USA FREEDOM Act, the Supreme Court’s expansion of exemption 4 of FOIA, First Amendment limits on denials of trademark registration, the Broadcast Spectrum Auction, and the continuing battle over net neutrality.
