Defamation In Cyberspace


  • Prençe MIRGEN

    (Lawyer, Tirana Bar Association/Albania. Ph.D. candidate, “Al. I. Cuza”, University of Iasi, Faculty of Law, Romania.)


The paper presents an analysis of defamation in cyberspace. Can a nation apply its own rules of law without diminishing the freedoms available to citizens of other states for publication in their home countries? Can it be regulated, should it be regulated, and if so why? All the questions will find answers. We also will present the solutions of many national courts on defamation through Internet. It is difficult to have unanimous consensus, because defamation on the internet has become one of the hot topics of internet law.
