Linking to defamatory material is not the same as publishing it, says Canadian court

Linking to defamatory material is not the same as publishing it, says Canadian court: “The publisher of a link to defamatory material does not have any liability for that defamation, a Canadian court has ruled. Liability could only exist if the link publisher made any statement relating to the defamatory material itself, the court said.”
