Newsworthy is a riveting expose of the legal machinations of big media companies like Time, Inc., and how they came, in a sense, to "capture" the courts on the issue of privacy through Time, Inc. v. Hill (1967), in which the Supreme Court for the first time addressed the conflict between privacy and freedom of the press.

Der amerikanische Klassiker in neuer Übersetzung Tom und Betsy Rath sind ein junges Paar, sie haben drei gesunde Kinder, ein schönes Zuhause in einem netten Vorort von New York und ein regelmäßiges, wenn auch nicht üppiges Einkommen. Eigentlich haben sie allen Grund, glücklich zu sein. Doch irgendwie sind sie es nicht. Tom pendelt Tag für Tag in die Stadt, wo er einem unspektakulären Bürojob nachgeht – seit er aus dem Krieg zurückgekehrt ist, hat er sich ohnehin verändert, ist verschlossen und launisch. Betsy fühlt sich unverstanden. Nach einem Karriereschritt hat Tom bald keine Zeit mehr für sein Privatleben. Ist es das, was Tom wirklich will? Als er auf einen alten Kameraden aus dem Krieg trifft, gerät sein Alltag vollends aus den Fugen, Tom muss sich seiner Vergangenheit stellen und eine Entscheidung treffen, die sein Leben grundsätzlich verändern wird. ›Der Mann im grauen Flanell‹, im Original 1955 veröffentlicht und sofort ein Bestseller, vermittelt wie wenige andere Romane den Geist der fünfziger Jahre. Zu Recht gilt er als moderner Klassiker und verdient es, zusammen mit den Werken von Richard Yates, John Cheever und Raymond Carver genannt zu werden. Der Buchtitel war so treffend, dass er im Englischen zu einem feststehenden Begriff wurde. Nun liegt der Roman in einer zeitgemäßen deutschen Übersetzung vor.

Noch nie konnten so viele Menschen wie heute ihre Meinung auf der ganzen Welt verbreiten. Internet und Globalisierung haben eine neue Epoche der Redefreiheit möglich gemacht, gleichzeitig provozieren sie neue kulturelle und religiöse Konflikte. Müssen wir rassistische Kommentare auf Facebook hinnehmen? Darf Satire den Propheten Mohammed verhöhnen? 2011 hat Timothy Garton Ash eine Debatte angestoßen, seitdem diskutieren Teilnehmer aus der ganzen Welt die Frage, wie wir in Zukunft vernünftig unsere Standpunkte austauschen, wie wir das Recht auf Redefreiheit genauso wie die Würde Andersdenkender sichern können. Es ist der Stoff für sein neues Buch: Ein Standardwerk zur Redefreiheit im 21. Jahrhundert.

The First Amendment and Civil Liability

The First Amendment and Civil Liability Robert M. O'Neil A well-known First Amendment advocate explains the new threats to free expression posed by damage suits. This book explores a highly contentious set of issues involving freedom of speech and press. Until very recently, publishers and producers have assumed that, with a few exceptions like libel, freedom of expression was absolute and safe from civil liability in the form of damage awards. In the late 1990s, these complacent assumptions were sharply challenged. The case of the Hit-Man Manual signaled the shift. After a hired assassin had been convicted of a brutal murder in a Washington, D.C. suburb, it turned out he had used a book that contained graphic, detailed instructions on how to carry out an execution. When the family of the victims sued the publisher for wrongful death, a federal appeals court ruled that the book was "not protected speech" since its apparent purpose was "to facilitate murder." The publisher was thus, for the first time, potentially liable for criminal acts committed by a reader of one of its books. Later cases, especially a suit against Natural Born Killers' producer Oliver Stone, have invoked this ruling in seeking to impose liability on those who create and distribute material that causes others to inflict injury or death. Noted First Amendment scholar Robert M. O'Neil looks at seven areas where free expression is now at risk of incurring civil liability -- libel and slander (including a separate analysis of libel on the Internet), privacy (paparazzi and others who intrude), defective or dangerous "products," incitement (the claim of a link between speech and criminal acts, as in the Natural Born Killers case), advertising, news-gathering (for example, the Food Lion/ABC Primetime Live case,) and threats and incitement on the Internet (as in the anti-abortion Nuremberg website case.) O'Neil's clear exposition and analysis illuminate the issues for a broad range of readers concerned about a host of new threats to, and the limits of, free expression.

The Scope of Tolerance

Studies on the Costs of Free Expression and Freedom of the Press

One of the dangers in any political system is that the principles that underlie and characterize it may, through their application, bring about its destruction. Liberal democracy is no exception. Moreover, because democracy is relatively a young phenomenon, it lacks experience in dealing with pitfalls involved in the working of the system - the ‘catch’ of democracy. This is an interdisciplinary study concerned with the limits of tolerance, this ‘democratic catch’, and the costs of freedom of expression. Rights are costly, and someone must pay for them. We can and should ask about the justification for bearing the costs, weighing them against the harms inflicted upon society as a result of a wide scope of tolerance. While recognizing that we have the need to express ourselves, we should also inquire about the justifications for tolerating the damaging speech and whether these are weighty enough. This book combines theory and practice, examining issues of contention from philosophical, legal and media perspectives and covers such issues as: media invasion into one’s privacy offensive speech incitement hate speech holocaust denial media coverage of terrorism. This book is essential reading for anyone who has research interests in political theory, extremism, and free speech.

die Tugend des Vergessens in digitalen Zeiten

GOOGLE VERGISST NIE! Weshalb es lebenswichtig ist zu vergessen Das digitale Zeitalter ist eines der perfekten Erinnerung: niemals zuvor haben wir so viele Informationen sammeln können wie heute. Immer größer und billiger werdende Speichermedien, neue Methoden zur Erschließung von Informationen und der Zugriff auf Daten aus aller Welt über das Netz machen dies möglich. Welche Folgen hat diese Entwicklung? Wird nur noch das als wahr gelten, was die Form digitaler Daten annimmt? Oder werden wir für das, was dauert, für Verträge und sprachliche Kunstwerke, beim Papier bleiben? Ist das Vergessen nicht ein exzellenter, evolutionär bewährter Mechanismus zur Gewichtung von Informationen? Beeinträchtigt das permanente Erinnern nicht unser Urteils- und Entscheidungsvermögen und damit unsere Entwicklungsfähigkeit? Sind aus ihrem Kontext gerissene Informationen nicht anfällig für Manipulationen? Mayer-Schönberger öffnet uns die Augen für die Gefahren der ewigen digitalen Erinnerung und zeigt die wichtige Rolle auf, die das Vergessen in unserer Geschichte gespielt hat. Er plädiert für eine genial einfache Lösung: Dateien aller Art mit einem Verfallsdatum auszustatten, damit das Gedächtnis der Menschheit nicht unter der Datenflut zusammenbricht.
