Balanced News: Sample Page Title

Our 'quick read' news summary

The Australian woman, Janice Duffy, has won two defamation cases against Google, after judges criticised the US-based search engine for failing to act more swiftly to remove defamatory results. In both cases, Google was found to have published defamatory ‘snippets’ of webpages in its search results, along with two of the pages in full when users followed the links. However, Google was also found to have been ‘entirely reactive’ in the removals process, and should have acted to block or remove access to two more links to the same website ‘within a reasonable time’ after Duffy won her first case. The changes to defamation law being proposed by the states and territories would not take effect until at least 2024, so there is still a chance that Google could be sued in future.
