MCO 215 Applied Media Law and Ethics

3 Credit(s)
This course will deal with the legal and ethical issues encountered by U.S. publishers, editors, writers and other content producers and distributors since the ratification of the First Amendment.  Attention will be given to landmark events and to the historical, political and technological developments that gave rise to them. Emphasis will be placed on the concept of legal precedent, those assumptions about the nature of humans on which moral judgments are made and on the evolution of libertarian thought from the ratification of the First Amendment to the present. Three lecture hours per week.
