Great course! Very comprehensive

Considering that internet and media regulation is now the hot topic in policy discussions in both Europe and the US, I consider Mr. Picker's course to be especially useful and and up-to-date. I was more of a begineer in the field, which is why I found the course very informative. Mr. Picker seems to be funny and friendly, and he explains the material in an easily digestable way. As technologies are quickly evolving, I would like to take another course with Mr. Picker in the future, possibly focusing on topics we didn't focus that much in this series (especially social media, liability of intermediaries, but also e.g. privacy).

Great course covering a wide range of media platforms. Each week was a journey in one particular media field, from the initial entry of technology to the modern day legal issues raised by these businesses. Randy Picker is very easy to follow and enjoyable to listen to, and clearly has a deep knowledge and passion for the topics he discusses.

Fantastic course: comprehensive, informative and well-presented!
