While the person or organisation that organises the printing, as well as the person who letterboxes or posters, can be found guilty of an offence under the EPA, care should also be taken with the content of a poster.
When deciding on the content of the information, some care needs to be taken. A person or corporation about whose reputation you may be making derogatory comment in the public domain may have a basis for a civil action for damages in defamation against you or your group. Defending legal actions in defamation can be a costly and debilitating process for individuals, organisations and campaigns, a fact that has been used by big corporations to their advantage.
