Criteria & Marking:
An assessment rubric for this item is attached here, but in brief the problem solving analyses will
be assessed on their clarity, brevity, currency, relevance and understanding of the chapter
readings of the designated weeks. Review the rubric carefully before starting. Learning Problem 1: The Tweeting PR Person.
Length: 1800 words [ 3 x 600 word (approx.) module-based learning problem analyses
(covering Modules 1-3) ]
The module-based learning problems address the core material covered in each module in the
textbook, lectures and other readings and learning experiences. They are designed around a
scenario in each module and you are required to draft and submit a 600 word response to the
questions asked and issues raised in relation to each scenario. Learning Problem 1: The Tweeting PR Person.
Typically, you should use your 600 words for each of the three problems to answer these
a. What are the main media law issues that arise in this scenario?
b. Explain briefly how those laws and possible defences might apply.
c. What cases / examples / legislation are relevant to this situation?
d. Assuming your goal is to try to publish as much of the material as is legally allowable, what
course of action would you recommend for the journalist or publisher in this situation and why?
You are required to discuss the problems each week on the Discussion Board section of the Media
Law site. [Of course, you cannot copy other students’ contributions in your own answers!]. The
problems are designed to showcase the key legal knowledge and principles underpinning the
course and the module questions will prepare you for your responses to the problems in Modules 4
and 5 and in the final take-home exam. This portfolio of your learning problem responses from
Modules 1-3 ensures you are on track with their completion and that your preparation is on track
for your exam. Learning Problem 1: The Tweeting PR Person.

Learning Problem 1: The Tweeting PR Person
In the era of social media, publishing information is now easier although it comes with
major legal issues. People are sometimes tempted to publish and pass the news fast but in the
process fail to observe the legality of their action. This is the case of a government PR person
criticising the government he/she works for. Learning Problem 1: The Tweeting PR Person.
A number of issues arise concerning the use of social media at work. One issue is the
protection of the right to political expression, as enshrined in Article 19 of the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights. This article states that every person is guaranteed freedom to have
and express opinion without victimisation……
