The purpose of this course was to introduce us students to the Danish and European law regarding media production and management activities. The course was divided into three themes:
- Subjects related to establishment and operation of businesses and media productions
- Media law regarding freedom of expression along with the balance of opposite considerations concerning private life, personality, reputation etc.
- Subjects related to marketing, advertisement and sponsorship
Throughout the course we made several small tasks and problems practicing and discussing the laws.
The course was examined with a multiple-choice test and a written report discussing two law-related problems.
- Business establishment
- Business law
- Media law
- Marketing law
The course gave me an understanding of the problematics I as student and employee can face during media productions such as where I am allowed to film or my rights of privacy. Furthermore, it gave me an understanding of different kinds of companies and what it takes to establish one.
