Does anyone know what this means?

"Publishers of online archives and blogs might also be given a defence
of qualified privilege - that a piece is fair and accurate and
published without malice - against an offending article after a year
time limit has expired.

They would face action only if they refused to publish the correction
on the offending web page."

If it is fair, accurate and malice-free, then it isn't libellous
anyway, and doesn't need correcting.
