The Australian High Court has ruled that websites can be sued for defamation, even if based in other countries.
According to the BBC, the court has decided that financial publishers Dow Jones can be sued for defamation in Australia over an article that appeared on its Barron's website.
Melbourne businessman Joseph Gutnick argued that, since the article could be read on the internet by people who knew him in Melbourne, he had been defamed in Australia.
Dow Jones had argued that publication of the article took place in the US and that the case should be heard there.
Several international media companies made submissions to the court backing Dow Jones, amid fears that international news organisations could be sued in Australia, even by plaintiffs who are not resident in the country.
