        Libel reform

        After 3 years and £1.5 million, Nature Research last week won a libel case brought against it by physicist and engineer Mohamed El Naschie. In this Podcast Extra, Sense About Science's Tracey Brown and Dr Evan Harris discuss the implications of the victory and the need for profound reform of these laws with Nature's Adam Rutherford.
