On Negative Theory of “News (Or Media) Infringements”

  • Xinbao Zhang


Whether the “news infringement” or the “media infringement” should be stipulated in Tort Law is quite a controversial issue. The author advocates that the “news infringement” or the “media infringement” should not be written into the articles of Tort Law. This paper is attempting to make a comprehensive elaboration on this proposal and turns to fellow scholars for advice, especially those who hold an affirmative attitude to the “news infringement” or the “media infringement”.
