ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of the methods in which actual malice, an important aspect of defamation law in the U.S., has been adapted and reimagined in other jurisdictions around the world. It informs that in an American perspective, the "actual malice" rule, which the U.S. Supreme Court proclaimed in 1964 makes it unique in comparison to rest of the world. It discusses the judgment of the Supreme Court in the court case New York Times Co. v. Sullivan. The author presents a comparison of the libel judgment in the U.S. with libel decision of the Hungarian Constitutional Court in a similar case.
