That UK libel laws are a disgrace is, of course, not news. The response here appears to have been as disproportionate as ever.
One thing I haven't seen though, is a good article on how libel laws should be arranged (in broad strokes, obviously). Whereabouts in the world can you find a settlement where the best (least worst?) balance is struck between the right to free speech, and an individuals right to un-publish damaging falsehoods, or seek compensation once they are too far gone?
I've looked through a fair number of posts published in the last few days, but I've not seen anything that quite fits the bill. Any pointers gratefully received. I'm looking for an addition to my 'best in the world' occasional feature here.
