Celebrities seek change in New York State law – Topix
I read in an old Associated Press handbook/dictionary (UPI had one too) which has guidelines for journalists about libel, that something that cannot be libelous is that said about dead people. Or in other words though we say “don’t speak ill of the dead” there is no legal reason not to, which is a shame, some part of that image should be protected along with free speech, free from profiteering.
