Commenters on the Why are you doing this? thread are talking about libel law.
I'd think the subject is dead boring, except for the fact that El Naschie may come after me. So for me, this wonderfully succinct summary of Internet libel law is perfect.
Laws specific to several countries including the USA and the UK are discussed.
Howrey does seem to like to take care of one adversary at a time, so I may be next after the dispute with Nature is settled. Die Zeit, then Nature, and then El Naschie Watch may be their plan. I really don't know. Maybe Sven Hanson is correct when he says "You can be sure he will never take a solicitor to shut you up."
As I read it, Britain would be a good venue for El Naschie to sue me because the onus is on me to prove, e.g., that he was not made a full professor; while in the USA the onus is on him to prove that he was made one. But I am not a lawyer and that may be simplistic. If anyone with legal knowledge in this area knows what I should expect, please speak up.
Getting cold feet, Martin?
