This article discusses the landmark decision in Godfrey v Demon Internet Ltd, where Professor Godfrey brought proceedings against a British ISP after a posting to a newsgroup appeared from an unknown US user, purporting to be Prof. Godfrey. This was defamatory of him. This was the first decision in the United Kingdom on liability of ISP's for defamatory material held on their systems. Ent. L.R. 1999, 10(6), 184-185
