"I will write to the Ministry of Justice on its consultation on defamation but only if 10 people will do the same."
— Paul Bradshaw, Blogger and lecturer
Deadline to sign up by: 10th December 2009
1 person signed up, 9 more were needed
Country: United Kingdom
The UK Ministry of Justice is consulting on a rule that could see publishers of defamatory material on the internet face court action just once instead of every time the offending item is repeated. This could see a long-overdue overhaul of a print law being misapplied to online publishing. We need to make sure that the law is changed.
The consultation is at http://www.justice.gov.uk/consultations/... and the email address to send your response to is firstname.lastname@example.org
