Hong and Su compare the evolution of media laws across the world, focusing on representative countries in North America, Western Europe and Asia and analyzes the political, economic, cultural and societal reasons for the evolution. In addition, their work also examines the challenges facing media laws in the new era of globalization and informatization. Moreover, the authors cover issues that are related to many newly emerged legal aspects such digital media law issues, libel law issues, copyright issues, and cyber-privacy issues.
