I know of some cases where NKT was able to oppress information by academics by threatening to sue them.
Now there is obviously a new case and the question is, how this will turn out…
It is known that UK is among those countries with the strictest libel laws. But what is meant to be a protection to be infamized has been used by powerful organisations to repress information too. The rather funny point here is that NKT threats to sue based on mere speculations gained from an Amazon announcement.
Quite quickly after the announcement of Gary Beesley’s book at AMAZON he and his publisher received two letters threatening a legal case. Check yourself what to think about all of this…
