This is a very good summary, thank you.

I would like to add that if it is a case of Internet-based defamation, is very important that the victim or the victim's attorneys take early steps to preserve what would otherwise be perishable evidence in the form of log files and connection records for the IP addresses associated with the defamatory publications. This is important because there are no rules governing the length of time an Internet service provider must keep these log files. For example, if an anonymous defamatory article is published via mobile phone, it is possible to the log files will be systematically deleted in as little as seven days by the carrier.

I have worked on several cases that have run aground because important evidence perished due to this problem.
