An injunction is an effective remedy as it is a court order preventing or requiring a specific act of defamation, for example, halting the publication of a particular article in a newspaper or requiring a webhost to remove defamatory material from a site. Injunctions are rarely granted in defamation actions, unless it is clear that the statement is defamatory and that the defendant does not intend to plead a defence. It may be used to prevent an intended defamation or where there is a real danger that a person will repeat a defamation already published.
