: For more on the American McLibel and other such cases, see my Censored in Chicago page.

[note: that page has now been moved to a new URL - due to a "trademark infringment" suit against zippo.com, which was using that name for years... so it's at www.newsguy.com now.]

Incidentally, the news is that Oprah Winfrey has won the suit, after the judge said she wasn't subject to the "food libel" claim after all, but 'only' a common law 'business disparagement', which was harder for the opposition to prove. What this means as far as the rights of others are concerned, I still don't know.
