: McSpotlight: Fine, but does that give McDonald's the right to sue people for saying things they don't agree with?

Does it give you the right to make all those accusations without the proper facts, after all half the allegations were proved false in a court of law.

McSpotlight: We *had* the facts, as a quick glance at the referenced factsheet will tell you - many of them from McDonald's themselves in the form of internal documents; the judge merely ruled that the claims were unproven - *not* false; the claims the McLibel Two won on were ruled proven in a court of law beyond reasonable doubt.

(You might do to buff up on the UK legal system with respect to libel...)
