SCC2011 - Libel Reform and Science - Sile Lane

  1. 3. Dr Fiona Godlee, Editor-in-Chief, BMJ (British Medical Journal): “ At the BMJ , we have had to turn papers down on legal advice…the information was clinically important and should have been readily available to clinicians in the UK.”
  2. 4. Alex Lane, Editor, What Satellite and Digital TV : “ It's almost impossible to cover the poor manufacturing standards of the set-top boxes used by millions of people daily, because of the potential legal and commercial ramifications of taking on large companies. Sheer cost means the battle would be lost before it ever reached the courts.”
