Defamation

A California appeals court has ruled that online auction site eBay cannot be held liable for defamatory comments that one user made against another. However, the court did note that eBay could be held liable in such a case if it knew or had reason to know that the information being disseminated on its site was defamatory. (Grace v. eBay, California Court of Appeal, No. B168765, 2004)
