Interested in suing for defamation of character?


What is defamation of character?

Defamation of character occurs when someone says something about you which is untrue and which is damaging to your reputation or results in some other damage to you.

What about defamation online?

A new and developing area of defamation law is defamation of character for statements published online. The law of defamation applies equally to the internet, however it can be more difficult to establish libel on the internet.

For example, if someone has written something about you on an online bulletin board or chat room, the law has developed recently to allow a defamation claim to be made in certain circumstances. This applies frequently to comments made online about a person’s business.
