Flood v Times Newspapers Ltd

Queen’s Bench Division

“An article which attracted qualified privilege when printed in a newspaper could lose that privilege if its electronic form was kept on the paper’s website after circumstances had changed but the article was not modified to reflect that change in facts. Thus while an article in The Times published on June 2, 2006 was privileged, publication on its website after September 5, 2007 was not.”

The Times, 23rd October 2009
