A media frenzy

It’s been a very interesting six months or so in the world of media law.

Perhaps the two most prominent developments have been in the sphere of privacy, first in the publication of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation, and second in the much publicised Supreme Court case of PJS v News Group Newspapers [2016] UKSC 26, [2016] All ER (D) 135 (May), involving a celebrity and attempts by News Group Newspapers (the publishers of The Sun) to set aside an injunction forbidding the reporting of a story concerning that celebrity’s sex life.
