Defamation Act (with its variations) is a stock used for legislation in Malaysia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom relating to defamation. It supersedes the short title Libel Act.

The Bill for an Act with this short title will have been known as a Defamation Bill during its passage through Parliament.

Defamation Acts may be a generic name either for legislation bearing that or for all legislation which relates to intense resentment.
