Man guilty of libel over Facebook 'likes': Swiss court

"In its statement, the court said it did not matter that the comments had not originated from the defendant, whose name was not given..... "By clicking the 'Like' button, "the defendant clearly endorsed the unseemly content and made it his own," the court statement said."

Court strikes down rule forcing toy drone users to register with govt

"“The FAA’s 2015 registration rule, which applies to model aircraft, directly violates that clear statutory prohibition,” the opinion said. “We therefore grant Taylor’s petition and vacate the registration rule to the extent it applies to model aircraft.”

Reince Priebus Says White House Has ‘Looked at’ Changing Libel Laws

"It’s not clear how seriously anyone should take Trump or Priebus’s remarks, but if the White House wants to try and open up U.S. libel laws, the odds of that effort being successful are essentially zero. There is no federal libel law, and existing libel laws are defined by state courts and legislatures. That means that there is no one law to change, to begin with. In addition, state laws are limited by a 1964 Supreme Court decision that public officials and public figures who want to sue a news organization for libel would have to prove that false information was knowingly published with malicious intent against them. They would also have to prove that the news organization damaged their character or reputation. Neither allegation is easy to prove."
