about

There have been several instances in the recent past, where Publishers have withdrawn, destroyed or abandoned the publication of a book because of legal threats or actions by corporations or other associations. Most such attempts are against the Freedoms given to us, citizens of India, under Article 19 of the Constitution. This book provides a comprehensive account of the legal provisions which are provided by the law of the land in matters of defamation, slander and ‘causing offence’ with regard to print publications and the defences possible in such cases. It does so in language that is accessible to the layperson and free of legalese. Freedom to Publish is free for dissemination and is an effort to create a valuable resource for publishing students, professionals, entrepreneurs and organisations as well as authors. In so doing it hopes to make the publishing community in India feel empowered to continue with its core task of publishing without fear.
