Am I crazy because I think there should be a law to protect the dead from deliberate libel and slander? Because Elvis Presley, my own favorite, and Micheal Jackson are, I think, often deliberately lied about in the media and press, I believe that the old libel and slander laws that USED TO protect the dead as well as the living, should be put back on the books.

Len is Disgusting says that people should be allowed to lie freely about any dead people, and there should never be a law to protect them.

Who is right?

Not only do the dead have no protection against claims of libel or slander, they lack other protection afforded to the living...a good example would be the right to "confidentiality" as regards medical information that otherwise would be protected.

Who decides what are lies and what is true? Who does the suing? Aren't there already too many stupid lawsuits?

A person has a right not to be lied about. That is not a "stupid" lawsuit.

Obviously, it would be the judge or jury who would decide what a lie was.

1. It would have to be deliberate.

2. If the person had said it was his or her opinion, that would be protected free speech.

3. It would have to be proved that the "facts" told by the speaker/author were incorrect. If, for instance, tabloid A said that Mary Smith had her baby and was unmarried, but Mary could prove with marriage certificate and baby's birth certificate that it was a lie, the tabloid would lose.

Most things could not be proven, because you can seldom prove a negative. But many things can be proven.

Excuse me. I should have said that Mary's relatives could prove it, because Mary is dead.

Well, I guess I read you right all along, King Elvis. You stand up for the MM because you think it is perfectly alright to lie about Elvis.

As soon as they lie, Fatty, I'll be the first in line to slam them.

Just like I did with Dee Presley, Alanna Nash, Tommy Steele and many others ...

... oh, and YOU, of course.

Hmmmmm. Let's look at some facts.

1. Lee makes questionable statements that sound as if they were lifted right out of Kenneth Lanning's profile of a pedophile.

2. Lee is reluctant to believe a child when said child claims he or she was inappropriately touched.

3. Lee thinks a pedophile's life shouldn't be so badly disrupted when caught with a hand down a child's pants.

4. Lee is more concerned about protecting dead celebrities than he/she is about protecting children from sexual predators.

Yes, Lee, you are crazy.

Excuse me. You can't say on the one hand that it is ok to lie about the dead and on the other hand that you will be the first one to slam them.

Why are you more concerned with protecting dead adults than with protecting living children?

Because there are already laws to protect living children. Granted, not enough, but there are already laws.

There are NO laws to protect the reputations of the dead. Not even dead children.

Decent people don't tell lies about dead people and neither do they pay any heed to the lies being told. For example, even though Wacko fans call Evan Chandler all sorts of awful things, sane people know better than to stress about it.

Your cuckoo demands are only being made because you have an empty life. Bloody lunatic.

Yes, decent people do care, because they know that lies hurt people.
