Facebook comment is free, unless it's misleading and deceptive

Recently, the Federal Court found that a Facebook user's posts constituted misleading or deceptive conduct and ordered that the user pay $25,000 damages plus costs to the company that was the subject of the posts.

Allens Partner Miriam Stiel and Lawyer Tracy Lu report on the decision.
