This is a site designed to make it easier to take the core of large published reports and allow anyone to comment on them.
Q1 Taking into account the arguments set out above, do you consider in principle that the multiple publication rule should be retained? If not, should a single publication rule be introduced? Please give reasons for your answers.
Personally, I don't have any objection to the multiple publication rule, provided there is a sensible extension of qualified privilege. Certainly, I can see the rationale for it — repeating a libel or a slander should not be without consequence, but publishers should not be exposed to liability for every click, by any stretch of the imagination.Posted by Owen Blacker on 2009-10-04 00:00:35.
