Supreme Court Of Canada Rules: 'Hyperlinking doesn't constitute defamation'

"The Supreme Court of Canada has erected a shield to protect those who post defamatory internet links to other sites.

The Court was unanimous in ruling that anyone whose site supplies hyperlinks that lead to another site has not published it for the purposes of libel and defamation law.

The decision effectively gives the benefit of the doubt to internet posters who may be unaware that a site they link to could contain defamatory material about another party."
