To bring a defamation action you must be a:

  • living person
  • not-for-profit corporation
  • corporation that employs fewer than 10 persons and that 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, a large multinational corporation cannot bring a defamation action against an individual.
