This answer was rated:

Hi there. I have an 800-word article that I would like to publish online and I'd like to get it checked for potential libel and/or defamation.
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Peterborough, UK
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I've simply written the article.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Can't think of anything right now.
What is the article concerning?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Hi Jeremy. It's about an organisation that is misleading customers by having a brand identity similar to our organisation. It doesn't name the company but will show the 'passing off' branding.
Hi thank you for your message, the truth is a defence to a libel action so provided what you write is true then you have an absolute defence to any libel action.

It is all true, Jeremy. I even have emails from customers who were misled, too. That's great. Thanks. Have a good weekend.
