The media landscape has changed dramatically. With the Internet, a business or personal reputation can be harmed, globally, with a defamatory posting. Conversely, any controversial public communication – a website, an article, a speech, a broadcast, an advertisement, a press release, a prospectus – creates the risk of liability. On the media front, bloggers and website owners bypass publication bans. New independent websites emerge every day and information flows are difficult to control. The media industry faces unique challenges in protecting its reputation and defending its freedoms. Our clients look to Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG), Canada’s largest law firm, to guide them through these unique challenges. Our lawyers are leaders in matters related to publication bans, libel, privacy, access to information and freedom of the press.
