Doru Costea has published Freedom of Speech Public Versus Private Theoretical and Practical Aspects Referring to the Newest Regulations of the Civil Code Regarding Freedom of Speech. Here is the abstract.
The first express regulation regarding the freedom of speech and consequently relating to the press appeared along with the Civil Code, which came into force on 1.10.2011.
