The Right to Reputation

(p.15) II The Right to Reputation
Defamation and Freedom of Speech

Dario Milo

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the meaning and legal significance of reputation, and the values underpinning the right. The chapter proceeds as follows. Part B discusses the nature and legal protection of reputation in the principal jurisdictions considered. Part C examines the underlying values that reputation appears designed to serve. Part D concludes the discussion and argues that ventilating the values underlying reputation will assist in deciding the proper approach to be adopted when reputation must be balanced against freedom of expression.
