1. Breit, Rhonda. "Uniform Defamation Laws in Australia: Have they struck a better balance" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, The Renaissance, Washington, DC, Aug 08, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p204026_index.html>

Abstract: A new uniform defamation regime now operates in Australia. This paper canvasses the Uniform Defamation Laws focusing on the defence of qualified privilege and its capacity to protect mass media publications in the public interest. Whilst the uniform approach expands the circumstances when a fair report of public proceedings will be protected, the statutory qualified privilege appears to borrow from two different approaches: the UK approach articulated in Reynolds v Times Newspapers Limited and Others and the approach outlined in Section 22 of Defamation Act 1974 (NSW). Drawing on case law and analysis of the key approaches to statutory privilege, this paper evaluates the current approach to statutory qualified privilege. The paper questions whether the UDA statutory qualified privilege will ultimately censor publications in the public interest.

Abstract: The law of libel, as applied to the Internet in Korea, is still relatively undeveloped, given the uniqueness of the Internet as “the most participatory form of mass speech yet developed.” The Internet defies national boundaries that traditionally governed publication, while challenging the distinction between public and private communications.
This paper examines Internet libel law in South Korea. Its working premise is that an in-depth analysis of libel law issues in cyberspace in Korea will likely add to a comparative outlook on mass communication law and regulations. The first part of the paper focuses on various libel laws of Korea, whether they relate directly or indirectly to defamation on the Internet. The paper’s second part is devoted to discussing several court cases, including the 2002 landmark case of the Constitutional Court, which involved cyberlibel. The last section of this paper offers the author’s critical analysis of the Korean government’s legislative and judicial experimentation with balancing freedom of expression with reputational interests in cyberspace.

"Character Assassination: How Ideology, Culture, and Psychology Shaped the Art of Defamation Throughout Ages" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Political Psychology, Ergife Palace Hotel, Rome, Italy, <Not Available>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p725343_index.html>

Abstract: Character assassination is a deliberate damage of an individual’s reputation. Most notable victims of character assassination are political leaders, officials, celebrities, writers, scientists, and other public figures. “Character assassins” target private lives, behavior, values, and identity of their victims. Character assassination is not limited to modern democracies. In fact, it is as old as human civilization. Throughout history, people of all ranks, occupations, and persuasions have employed character attacks against their opponents. This paper is a summary of at least three years of research in this field. The cases are drawn from different historic periods including the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages, the French Revolution, the American Revolution, and numerous modern cases from China, Russia, the United States, and other countries. Based on insights from the fields of history, political science, and psychology and using several empirical models developed in political psychology, the paper is focusing on at least two types of findings. On the one hand, character assassination appears as a timeless, cross-cultural phenomenon that reveals itself in a variety of forms and methods typical for every cultural, political, ideological, and technological epoch. On the other hand, character assassination has unique features—including different types, intentionality, timing, contents, methods, and effectiveness—that may have been shaped by specific political ideologies and cultures. Ideological and cultural factors may also explain why some character attacks become effective while others do not.

Abstract: The paper uses legal research methodology to examine and evaluate federal and state defamation jurisprudence. In doing so, it determines what factors the courts have used to define community in both traditional print and broadcast defamation cases as well as online defamation cases. It then evaluates those factors and concludes with suggestions for uniformly defining community in online defamation cases.
