Freedom of speech is not only a value in itself it is a fundamental part of the Rule of Law
Freedom of speech in the EU is very strong in the UK, Monty Python Flying Circus couldn't be done in may other countries. Sweden, Denmark, Holland are also the strong defendents of the freedom of speech and opinion.

Intresting case,
The Austrian woman receives several abusive e-mails and post them in the Social Media what resulted in the accusation, from the site of the abuser, for defamation and ruin of reputation what has resulted in reduction of income 

He is suing the victim Sigi Mauer for the posting the e-mails in the Social Media. The reuested  compensation for making abusive e-mail public is Euro 60 000.

For Swedish and  British ears it sounds like a total reverse of the culpability.
