Leaving aside the financial impact of Brexit, the impact on the media as a result specifically of changes in media law is likely to be modest. But there will be a period of uncertainty (and perhaps opportunity), in the areas of broadcasting, advertising and data protection, with potentially significant changes to follow. There is also the possibility of repeal of the Human Rights Act 1998 with effects on freedom of expression and privacy.

BWB’s Media Law team has produced a detailed briefing examining Brexit’s potential impact on:

  • Freedom of Expression, defamation, and privacy,
  • Jurisdiction issues
  • Personal data
  • Intellectual property, copyright and trade marks
  • Freedom of Information
  • Broadcasting and similar online services
  • E-commerce
  • Advertising law
