AbstractDefamation law is frequently used to suppress free speech. The Internet provides a means to challenge this. A country without laws against defamation could become a "defamation haven" by providing Web sites and publication assistance. A more immediate alternative is reproducing material on multiple Web sites, thus creating a "virtual defamation haven." Struggles over defamation on the Internet illustrate the way media forms are influencing free speech battles.
