The rise of Web 2.0 has pushed the amateur to the forefront of public discourse, public policy and media scholarship. Typically non-salaried, non-specialist and untrained in media production, amateur producers are now seen as key drivers of the creative economy. But how do the activities of citizen journalists, fan fiction writers and bedroom musicians connect with longer traditions of extra-institutional media production? This edited collection provides a much-needed interdisciplinary contextualisation of amateur media before and after Web 2.0. Surveying the institutional, economic and legal construction of the amateur media producer via a series of case studies, it features contributions from experts in the fields of law, economics and media studies based in the UK, Europe and Singapore. Each section of the book contains a detailed case study on a selected topic, followed by two further pieces providing additional analysis and commentary. Using an extraordinary array of case studies and examples, from YouTube to online games, from subtitling communities to reality TV, the book is neither a celebration of amateur production nor a denunciation of the demise of professional media industries. Rather, this book presents a critical dialogue across law and the humanities, exploring the dynamic tensions and interdependencies between amateur and professional creative production. This book will appeal to both academics and students of intellectual property and media law, as well as to scholars and students of economics, media, cultural and internet studies.

Subsurface migration, fertilizer runoff from farms, storm water from streets, and other forms of diffuse pollution are now recognized as having serious environmental consequences. In more than 50 percent of estimated cases in which water quality goals are not achieved, diffuse pollution is cited as the main cause. This guide surveys the myriad problems and challenges presented by this form of pollution, and offers a wide range of feasible, cost-effective solutions for dealing with them. Water Quality: Prevention, Identification, and Management of Diffuse Pollution covers aspects of diffuse pollution ranging from sources and sites to health and legal consequences. It provides readers with valuable discussions of Sources of diffuse pollution Legal definitions The hydrologic nature of diffuse loads, and the processes and land uses contributing to these loads Best management practices that emphasize removal of priority pollutants Use of wetlands The fate of pollutants in receiving waters The restoration of reservoirs, streams, lakes, and watersheds that have been damaged Extensive data are provided on nontoxic as well as toxic pollutants, including new toxic compounds. The authors provide an integrated approach to water quality control and explain advanced pollution abatement technologies, such as the use of wetlands. Sections on repercussions to the economy include discussions of cost/benefit analyses of abatement programs and the payments that support the programs. Throughout, real-world examples illustrate practical applications of various control, abatement, and remediation strategies. Readers discover how to use modeling techniques to pinpoint the effects of diffuse pollution, as well as how to plan environmental protection and recovery. Other areas investigated are erosion, soil pollution, industrial diffuse pollution management, and the use of aquacultures in wetland management. The book offers solutions to a serious pollution problem—making it required reading for environmental and agricultural engineers, planners, regulatory professionals, and remediation specialists. It will also be a useful source for graduate students in environmental engineering and science.
