Media Law is defined as "The legislation through which governments regulate the mass media. It includes issues of censorship, copyright, defamation, broadcast law, and antitrust law. In democracies, media law is seen as a balancing act between two conflicting principles: freedom of expression and constraints laid down in statutes of common law, as in issues of defamation and the national interest."
