NeoGAF's Chief Barrister
Some guy said:A quick, err, notice. Post 923 is highly libellous, it's not you that gets into trouble DECK, it's EviLore and GAF that would get sued if any of the parties involved decide to take any action. Good post though, I would however blank out the names of the people who have not been yet proved guilty and just replace them with asterisks or generic terms.
Obviously it's up to you, but like I said, it's not you that gets sued, it's EviLore and GAF that would take the hit as they would be sued via an American court for your details and that costs money to defend.
It is highly unlikely, given constitutional protections, that this would fly in the US
Edit: I would also remove any and all references to Alistair McAlpine. Word is that his lawyers are just trawling through Google at the moment to look for references made to him after the Newsnight aired, and the way libel laws work in the UK, McAlpine is bound the law to sue everyone that may have defamed him, he can't just pick and choose, so again if they come across this thread and your posts, there is a fair chance that they will include NeoGAF in any action.
No he isn't. He's not bound by law to do any such thing.
However, Deck, for your own protection I'd steer clear of hosting this anywhere but on GAF for the moment.
This is off the top of my head for now, as I'm in the shop, but I'll check my books when I get home this evening just to be sure.
