Summary/Abstract: In this paper we will discuss some general issues relating to the Law on Protection against Defamation, which applies to all claims for damages, if they are filed for unlawful damage to reputation caused by making or disseminating untrue facts, regardless of the type of claim. The subject of discussion will be the provisions of this Act relating to the limitation of freedom of expression, liability for defamation, exemptions from liability, protecting confidential sources, compensation for damage, limitation periods and the relation of this law to other laws. In this paper we will use positive-historical and comparative method. Special attention will be paid to solutions that are accepted in comparative law. The aim of our study was, therefore, to compare legal solutions in some countries in terms of protection against defamation. In the course of writing this paper we considered both solutions adopted in the legislation and doctrine, as well as case law.
