Specsavers libels: intention does not count

Specsavers libels: intention does not count

His lawyer rightly said after: the intention of the content or its creators is irrelevant.  It’s the impact that counts.

This is an important warning to all content creators.  You are covered by media law like anybody else.  And what you intend is not the key.

Specsavers should have gone to ContentETC for its libel training.   We would have told it that.
