Holy shiz. If you'd have asked me before I would have said Australia would be one place that just wouldn't happen, I have this image of Aussie being the sort of country that wouldn't allow a foreign government to interfere in their freedom of speech.

 

"Worried about a possible defamation suit".

 

I don't know anything about law but I'd have thought that if he could back up what he claims in the book with facts he couldn't be touched.

 

If there is a real chance of being sued then I don't blame the publishers for not wanting to touch it but if that's just a BS excuse because they're getting pressure from elsewhere they're pretty much proving the author's point.

This insidious shithole is reaching out its tentacles all over the world. Make no mistake, they want the world for themselves. And no, I don't have a tinfoil hat.

Give an inch and they'll take a mile... Sprenger and Cambridge shouldn't have backed down.

 

Academic integrity ought to be worth something.

A: If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer.
A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
