Comments on Einarsson v Iceland (No.2) (31221/15) (ECtHR) on whether a national court's failure to compensate the applicant for defamatory statements about him on a Facebook page, or to pay his legal costs, breached his right to reputation under ECHR art.8. Discusses the court's approach to whether declaring the statements null and void was a sufficient remedy, and the case's implications for balancing privacy rights with freedom of expression.
