“Fake news” has garnered substantial attention recently but the authors of Fake News: A Legal Perspective, Journal of Internet Law (Apr. 2017) note that no legal discussion of issues surrounding the publication of fake news have appeared in the legal literature. “This [brief] article evaluates examples of fake news publications to present a workable definition of “fake news” for purposes of our legal analysis. We then explore many of the legal and regulatory hurdles facing online fake news publishers. This article concludes by discussing some of the legal protections available to fake news publications and publishers of other online content.” — Joe
