Internet defamation: linking to sources as a defence

Bloggers need to take due care to avoid writing anything defamatory - it's certainly something that I worry about, and which constrains me sometimes from publishing what I really think. But if I merely report what other people are writing, and link to the source material, will I have a defence? Perhaps, if I am careful about exactly what I say ... Eric Goldman reports on his internet law blog a California case which deals with this very issue. Well worth reading, even if (a) the case is unreported and (b) it won't necessarily cut much ice in the UK anyway.
