Colorado Librarian Jeffrey Beall Slapped With Canadian Libel Claim

Colleen Flaherty reports at Inside Higher Ed that the Canadian Centre for Science and Education has hit Beall with a libel claim over his Beall’s List of Predatory Publishers 2013. This follows the recently recognized case of Dale Askey reported on by Library Journal, The Hamilton Spectator, Macleans, and Inside Higher Ed.

Ah but there is a basic problem with this

It's only libel if it's not true.

If that were the only problem

In US cases, the plaintiff has to show that it isn't true.

In Canadian and British cases, the defendant has to prove the truthfulness.
