So you've had a threatening letter. What can you do?

‘So you’ve had a threatening letter. What can you do?’, is published by Sense About Science in association with Index on Censorship, English PEN, the Media Legal Defence Initiative, the Association of British Science Writers and the World Federation of Science Journalists.

The guide was prepared following Sense About Science’s survey of the impact of the libel laws on online discussion.

The guide is currently being updated in light of the Defamation Act 2013. Check back here for a new version soon.
