Reply To: For those who have no fear of libel threats (Joe Neutral eg)



As a journalist with some experience of the libel law, you should be very careful here. Mark is right to be concerned since recent cases have proved that the provider of the site and the writer can be sued. There is one crucial point to take on board – the fact that something you say is true is not a sufficient defence. You have to PROVE that it is true. And that can be a very, very expensive exercise if XXX take you to court. I understand your frustration, though.
