McDonald's Corporation v Steel & Morris [1997] EWHC QB 366, known as "the McLibel case", was an English lawsuit for libel filed by McDonald's Corporation against environmental activists Helen Steel and David Morris (often referred to as "The McLibel Two") over a factsheet critical of the company. Each of two hearings in English courts found some of the leaflet's contested claims to be libellous and others to be true. The partial nature of the victory, the David-and-Goliath nature of the case, and the drawn-out litigation embarrassed McDonald's. One of the authors of the "McLibel leaflet" was an undercover police officer who had infiltrated London Greenpeace.

  • 麥誹謗案,全名麥當勞餐廳訴莫里斯及史特案,是英國一宗廣受注目的商業誹謗官司。麥當勞從1990年起訴兩名英國反麥當勞人士誹謗,官司又引伸更多官司,訴訟延綿長達15年。雖然麥當勞最終技術上勝訴,但麥當勞在官司前派卧底滲透被告一方所屬的團體、盜取文件,而且法官指被告對麥當勞的批評逾半是正確,更多內容純粹被告的意見,不構成誹謗成份,事件成為麥當勞成立以來最嚴重的公關災難。 官司期間,兩名被告對麥當勞的批評受到廣泛關注,而案中小市民控訴超級巨企的性質,更引起公眾同情。事後麥當勞雖獲判可得4萬英镑的賠償,但麥當勞已表示無意討回賠償。而兩名被告一方因被英國政府拒絕伸領法律援助,而向歐洲人權法庭起訴英國政府,英國政府最終要向二人賠償5.7萬英镑。

  • Der McLibel-Fall (eine Verleumdungsklage, engl.: to libel) ist eine umgangssprachliche Bezeichnung für ein lang anhaltendes englisches Gerichtsverfahren von McDonald’s gegen David Morris und Helen Steel (auch als „The Libel Two“ bezeichnet), das durch eine Klage der McDonald’s Corporation ins Rollen gebracht wurde. Auslöser war ein McDonald’s-kritisches Flugblatt, das Steel und Morris angeblich verteilt hatten. Der Fall dauerte sieben Jahre, womit er der langwierigste der englischen Geschichte ist.
  • El Caso McDonald's Restaurants contra Morris y Steel (McDonald's Restaurants v Morris & Steel), coloquialmente conocido como el Caso McDifamación (McLibel case), fue un acción judicial de larga duración por difamación presentado por McDonalds Corporation contra los activistas ecologistas Helen Steel y David Morris (a veces apodados "Los Dos de la McDifamación") por un panfleto que atacaba a la compañía. El caso original, considerado por algunos expertos legales un pleito estratégico contra la participación pública, duró siete años, haciéndolo la acción en la corte más larga en la historia británica.
  • Viene denominato McLibel il processo iniziato nel 1990 contro due attivisti inglesi, Helen Steel e David Morris, i quali, insieme alla associazione cui facevano parte, la London Greenpeace, distribuivano volantini davanti ai McDonald's in cui dichiaravano che la compagnia vendeva cibo insalubre, sfruttava i lavoratori, praticava un marketing non etico nei confronti dei bambini, maltrattava gli animali, era responsabile di inquinamento e delle piogge acide in Sud America.
  • L'affaire McLibel (de l'anglais libel, « diffamation »), ou plus formellement affaire McDonald's Restaurants contre Morris & Steel, est le plus long procès de l’histoire britannique. Il s'est achevé le 15 février 2005, après plus de dix ans, par la victoire de David Morris et Helen Steel, deux militants écologistes anglais, face à McDonald’s devant la Cour européenne des droits de l'homme. Cette affaire est considérée comme un des exemples les plus connus d'effet Streisand.
