News Round-up - Defamation Act 2013 comes into effect in England and Wales

BBC News wrote on December 31 2013 here, 'Defamation Act 2013 aims to improve libel laws.' The Press Gazette wrote a piece by the title here, 'Defamation Act comes into force with 'serious harm' now needed for claims to succeed.' The editor of the Press Gazette Dominic Ponsford wrote a piece here, 'Six things all journalists need to know about the Defamation Act 2013 (which is now in force).' John Aglionby and The Financial Times produced a piece here, 'UK Defamation Act aims to end trivial claims and libel tourism.'
