This aim was reflected in section 1(2), which provides that ‘harm to the reputation of a body that trades for profit is not “serious harm” unless it has caused or is likely to cause the body serious financial loss.’ These provisions were justified by the coalition government of the day as necessary reforms designed to give greater prominence to free speech interests within the law of defamation, and to protect ordinary people from being crushed by libel claims brought by big businesses.
