Abstract

The decision by the High Court of Australia in Dow Jones & Co Inc v Gutnick, one of the first decisions by a final court of appeal on transnational online defamation, handed down on 10 Dec 2002, deals with the contentious issue of whether and, if so, when online publishers have to comply with the defamation laws of foreign States. The decision has been labelled a ‘dangerous precedent’ and an ‘extraordinary judgment’ by the British press. But is it indeed either?
