Libel Law in the Internet Age

Libel is one of the many legal issues that online publishers need to 
be aware of. Today, Law.com published an interesting exploration 
of this topic: Dot-Libel, by Cameron Stracher. It's taking a long time 
for libel law to catch up with the Net, but Stracher says there is 
some movement in that direction. Also, the global and public 
nature of this communications channel means that unexpected 
legal precendents might apply  including some from other 
countries.

topic is online content/online journalism/online publishing, so 
nettime related).
