Overview


This timely volume analyses in detail how the law of defamation will apply to publication of material on the Internet. Defamation (i.e. libel and slander) is one of the most difficult issues for Internet businesses to handle because material published on the Internet is potentially published in every country in the world, and each has its own standards of what is defamatory. Collins takes the study of legal issues raised by the Internet to a higher level than previous studies have.
