This defamation Bill is meant to protect businesses from being sued when others post defamatory comments. It'll also make it easier to identify the perpetrators of the comments.
|Plans to tackle internet trolling could have a "chilling effect" on online freedom of expression, a committee of MPs and peers has said. |
The Joint Committee on Human Rights warned that libel law reforms might cause website operators to delete statements that had not broken the law.
