Communication cannot function without respecting some basic rules. The course introduces students to the various limits set upon commercial communication by legislators or tribunals in order to protect specific public or private interests, like the norms governing advertising, unfair competition, privacy or the right of reply. As modern communication does not stop at national borders, and as regulations change more and more quickly, the relevant rules are not described and discussed from a purely legalistic perspective (as would be the case with lawyers), but from a political, dynamic and an international one. That means that not only Swiss law is addressed, but EU and US law as well.
