We are very pleased to present this important survey work on the ever-evolving state of the law globally as affects the day-to-day operations of the media and entertainment industries. This volume should be understood to serve, not as an encyclopaedic resource covering the broad and often complex legal landscape affecting the media and entertainment industries, but, rather, as a current snapshot of developments and country trends likely to be of greatest interest to the practitioner.
This book serves two purposes – one obvious, but the other possibly less so. Quite obviously, and one reason for its continuing popularity, the book addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a reference source. The second purpose this book aims to serve is to equip its readers to do a better job as practitioners at home. In other words, reading the summaries of foreign lawyers, who can describe relevant foreign laws and practices, is perfectly consistent with and helpful when interpreting and giving advice about one’s own law and practice.
As it has since inception, this tenth edition of The Technology, Media and Telecommunications Review provides a survey of evolving legal constructs in 21 jurisdictions around the world.

International oil and gas law is a fascinating field, sitting at an intersection of law, politics and business.

The Mining Law Review is designed to be a practical, business-focused ‘year in review’ analysis of recent changes, developments and their effects, and a look forward at expected trends.

Executive remuneration encompasses a diverse range of practices and is consequently influenced by many different areas of the law, including tax, employment, securities and other aspects of corporate law. We hope this book will be particularly useful in circumstances where a corporation is considering establishing a presence in a new jurisdiction, and is seeking to understand the various rules and regulations that may govern executive employment (or the corporate governance rules relating thereto) with regard to newly hired (or transferring) executives in that jurisdiction.

We are very pleased to present the fifth edition of The Public-Private Partnership Law Review. Notwithstanding the number of chapters in various publications in The Law Reviews series on topics involving public-private partnerships (PPPs) and private finance initiatives (in areas such as projects and construction, real estate, mergers, transfers of concessionaires’ corporate control, special purpose vehicles and government procurement), we identified the need for a deeper understanding of the specific issues related to this topic in different countries.
The sixth edition of this book aims to continue to provide those involved in handling shipping disputes with an overview of the key issues relevant to multiple jurisdictions. We have again invited contributions on the law of leading maritime nations, including both major flag states and the countries in which most shipping companies are located.

This tenth edition is proof of the continuously growing importance of international employment law. As the various editions of this book have highlighted, changes to the laws of many jurisdictions over the past several years emphasise why we continue to consolidate and review this text to provide readers with an up-to-date reference guide.
