Digital media law is an area of constant change. The revised AVMS Directive adopted last year is likely to be implemented in the UK, with enhanced rules for the protection of children and extended to cover a wider class of digital media players. There are ongoing discussions about the future of online TV and the regulation of electronic programme guides, and proposed reforms to copyright law and to consumer regulations will impact on media distribution and advertising. And now the Government has released its long-awaited White Paper on Online Harms which proposes a "duty of care" on social media companies.

This half day masterclass led by SCL’s Media Committee will explore these issues in detail.
