This article considers the argument made in the current application of Max Mosley to the European Court of Human Rights that Article 8 requires media bodies to notify potential claimants before stories that invade their private lives are run, in order to give them the opportunity to apply for an interim injunction. It argues that such relief is the only truly effective remedy for a threatened invasion of privacy and that at least in the context of UK law and the attitudes and culture of the British tabloid media, such a notification requirement is reasonably necessary. It contends that, given the safeguards in section 12 of the Human Rights Act, such a requirement would not amount to a disproportionate restraint on the Article 10 rights of the media.

  • The only platform for focused, rigorous analysis of global developments in media law, this new peer-reviewed journal is:

    • essential for teaching and research
    • essential for practice
    • essential for policy-making.

    It turns the spotlight on all those aspects of law which impinge on and shape modern media practices - from regulation and ownership, to libel law and constitutional aspects of broadcasting such as free speech and privacy, obscenity laws, copyright, piracy, and other aspects of IT law. The result is the first journal to take a serious view of law through the lens.
