I noticed this thread on another forum where they have said that they will no longer allow members to "out" fake items or those with missleading descriptions because of fear of legal action being taken against that forum. wow.
What they have said.
"Discussing the validity of claims made by either dealers, or other sellers, whether in their own sites, or on auction sites such as eBay about the authenticity of items offered for sale, could easily lead to posts that are legally defamatory. While posters remain responsible for their own posts, the forum would be the publisher of such posts, and therefore is potentially liable in a court of law.
Forum rules will shortly be amended to prohibit comment on items offered for sale, or on persons offering them. We regret the need for this, but a single legal action could close the forum as well as impoverishing the GWF team."
