Defamation of Character by Stand-Ins?

Monday 15th July / presented by Jeff Bullen

A recent decision of the Supreme Court of New South Wales determined that media companies could be liable for the defamatory comments made on news stories on their Facebook pages; that is, media organisations could be held liable for the comments of random people on the internet.

Journalists, their employers and media analysts in general took to forums such as Twitter to voice their concern on this decision.

UWA Senior Lecturer in Law Michael Douglas joined RTRFM to discuss this issue.
