Daily Mail libel threat provides larger audience for blogger

Interesting to see that the Daily Mail's Paul Dacre is as keen to threaten a libel action as the average celeb.

As Roy Greenslade's blogpost Daily Mail threatens 'abusive' blogger with libel action points out the threat of action will serve only to bring the blogger's original post to the attention of a wider audience.

I always think people in the public eye should consider PR as much as legal principle when deciding whether to sue for libel.

Also, here's a quick reminder of what libel is from the folk at useful resource, Law on the Web.
