Demon drops libel appeal
Demon Internet is embroiled in an Internet defamation case
By Internet Correspondent Chris Nuttall
Demon Internet has quietly dropped an intended appeal
against an Internet libel ruling that it said could affect
"the entire ethos of freedom of speech on the Internet."
The Internet Service Provider (ISP) had until Monday
evening to give notice of its appeal against the decision
by Mr Justice Morland in the High Court in London on
March 26. But the deadline passed without any action
on its part.
"We are not going to appeal because there is new
legislation being drafted and we have an opportunity to
get the law right through that, " said Phil Male, Demon's
Technical Director, talking to BBC News Online.
