In India defamation is both a civil tort where monetary compensation can be claimed and a criminal offence. The verdict of this case is also expected to encourage more number of people to file defamation case for damages. The case concerned an unintentional defamation by the publication of a photograph for a very short period of time. I think the judgment given by the court is great as this gives a message to the media that they need to act in a good manner even though they are working for the society, but the laws are same for all and if you do wrong you will be punished.
