To bring a defamation action you must be a:
- living person
- not-for-profit corporation
- corporation which employs fewer than 10 persons and which is not related to another corporation (ss 9, 10 Defamation Act 2005 (Qld)).
If you are a person or entity listed above, you can bring the action against any living person or a corporation, however, the multi-national corporation cannot bring a defamation action against an individual.
