Introduction

Facebook and Twitter are increasingly the source of online defamation cases heard by the courts.

This webinar will examine all the relevant case law including the recent Supreme Court decision in Stocker v Stocker [2019] which sets out the definitive approach to be taken when considering these cases.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • Identification of meaning - how do the courts apply the principles in Jeynes v News Magazine to social media?
  • Natural v innuendo meaning - how do the courts consider these two possibilities in practice?
  • Serious harm - what is the latest position on the correct interpretation of s1(1) of the Defamation Act in the context of social media?
  • Serious financial loss - how will the courts interpret s1(2) of the Defamation Act in the context of social media?
