Aren't Netflix American?  Can't see them being overly bothered as any legal action would need to be taken there.

If claims were made similar to those made by amaral then the film would be deemed libellous in most of the US under the libel per se rule

From the original information I dont think all 8 episodes will be about this case... It will be part of the series of 8 featuring other cases.... Not 100 % but thats as I remember.
Almost certainly the reason the mccanns wont take part is because they will have no editorial control and anything they say could be edited at the discretion of the programme makers

Defamation law in the United States is not something which I have ever given a lot of consideration.  It does seem quite clear though.  Defaming someone using false information to do so would appear to be a big NO! NO!  I'm sure the Pageretes of this life have their own version of Carter Ruck willing to drop Netflix a line.

FREE SPEECH V. DEFAMATION
In the United States, federal defamation law is closely tied to the First Amendment. As a result, federal slander and libel laws are more defendant-friendly in the U.S. than those in common law countries, like the U.K. and Canada. In short, opinion is not considered defamation in the U.S. That being said, false statements of fact that harm the reputation of an individual or business, aren't protected under Constitutional Free Speech provisions.

The remit of Operation Grange is to investigate ...  "(as if the abduction occurred in the UK)"

They appear to like to be in control.

Netflix will probably recoup their money,the tax payer certainly won't.

How, exactly, will Netflix recoup the £20m they are spending on this documentary, which presumably comes from monthly subscription fee profits?

You would have to be a fool not too in this situation... Pat Brown got totally stitched up by the Australian docu makers... Remember she claimed she was suing them.... Didnt have a leg to stand on as i explained at the time

The article says the documentary will cost £20 million not £20 thousand.

I can't see what can be said that hasn't already been said. A storm in a teacup imo.

More of a damp suib in a teacup... They will go with the available evidence.... No real evidence to implicate the mccanns.... And everything pointing to Abduction... Imo
