The media market is in flux. Decades-old genres of established media seem to disappear in increasing convergance, cross-media strategies and “content production”. Competition, traditionally limited within individual media sectors, is expanding and intensifying. In turn this creates concentrations spanning new media and serious changes in the working conditions of journalists. This situation gives rise to the such pressing questions as whether the media are fulfilling their social functions, why and to what extent they fail to do so and which political and legal developments are contradictory to these functions. In this unique collection scholars and practioners from the field of media and legal sciences have tried to provide answers to these questions.
