This edition examines new forces influencing media law while continuing to focus on foundational cases and principles that have shaped the field since its inception. New material includes increasing government secrecy and its impact on freedom of information; the latest on net neutrality; new restrictions on newsgathering including legislation involving drones; recent jurisprudential tests that unmask anonymous internet speakers; increasing potential liability for internet re-publishers despite older legal protections; newer changes in copyright protections in the wake of internet publishing; increasing judicial concerns about privacy and the reshaping of legal determinations including newsworthiness; and the increasingly difficult-to-answer question of who deserves shield law and other legal protections traditionally reserved for journalists. The casebook, written by authors who collectively have taught and researched media law for more than a century, focuses on the legal precedents that help shape judicial and legislative responses to today's new media.

The book explores all of the thought processes, skills and disciplines that a lawyer employs when representing the developer of a commercial real estate project. The book adopts a practical, skill-oriented approach in examining the role that the real estate development lawyer plays at each of the following ten stages of the development of a commercial real estate project: 1. Gaining control of the project site; 2. Securing governmental approvals and incentives; 3. Forming and capitalizing the project entity; 4. Closing the land acquisition; 5. Obtaining construction financing; 6. Designing and constructing the project; 7. Negotiating the project lease; 8. Executing an interim exit strategy; 9. Operating the project; and 10. Selling the project. The purpose of the book is to introduce law students and young lawyers to the real world issues that lawyers face every day when they strive to help their developer clients achieve their business objectives. The focus of the book is on why real estate development lawyers do what they do and not on the specifics of how they do it.
