Defamation Law in Australia commences with a colourful historical analysis of defamation action in England and Australia, before providing an in-depth commentary on the general underlying law, principles and concepts.



Following the introduction of the Defamation Act 2005 (Cth), defamation law is substantially uniform in Australia. The provisions of the Defamation Act are identified and explained, and important topics such as reputation and freedom of speech are explored.



This updated edition has been revised to reflect changes in legislation and case law, including an analysis of major decisions relating to publication on the internet, defences of truth and contextual truth, and awards of damages. It addresses developments in invasion of privacy law in Australia and explores topical issues such as disclosure of confidential sources and reform of the Defamation Act after more than 10 years operation.



The Defamation Act is fully reproduced as an Appendix, together with a Comparative Table of Defamation Statutes, contrasting previous legislation in each State and Territory with the uniform Act.
