MEDIA LAW

Films and Publications
In media law, we practice in the fields of Advertising and Films & Publications.

Media law, in general, continues to be subjected to much scrutiny in the public interest. Most individuals to not appreciate the vast impact of censorship or the various disguises in which censorship manifests itself. The rights enshrined in the bill of rights to the Constitution have been and will be subjected to constitutional litigation as South Africa continues to evolve as a democratic country. While advanced democracies such as the United States, Canada, France, Germany and Britain have the benefit today of years of constitutional reform, the South African context is somewhat different.

Media, in all its forms, plays a critical role in the evolution of the bill of rights in the Constitution and is not to be underestimated or marginalised. In the South African context, the rights enshrined in the bill of rights are not absolute and are therefore subject to limitation. Some may argue that this limitation may amount to censorship and is not in the public interest.

We advocate the view that free speech and uninhibited public debate is absolutely vital for the health and vitality of any democracy.

In specific instances, such as in respect of Films and Publications, the prevailing legislative landscape provides for a regulatory framework of classification of films and publications in terms of the Films and Publications Act 65 of 1996 which has been amended substantially since the Act came into operation.

The application and scope of the Act includes films, publications, digital games, digital files thereby impacting on the everyday life of every person in South Africa.

Our services include attending to and assisting our Clients with applications and complaints in terms of the Films and Publications Act.
