British Libel Laws Suck

The reach of global publishing means that Britain’s ruthless libel laws can be applied to all of us. British law tilts heavily in favor of the defendant, making it a good place to launch a libel lawsuit. As the Guardian points out: “English libel law now applies to everyone on Earth. Make any accusation, anywhere in the world, and if the subject can demonstrate that a single person in England or Wales has read it, you could be sued here for every penny, cent, rouble, rupee or renminbi you possess.”

I mostly like old, unpopular things, like from 2002. I'm also 102 years old.
