Have You Been Defamed on Social Media?

Internet Defamation is a very real problem for businesses and individuals in our connected and social media obsessed society. Internet Defamation is a review, post, comment, web site, Facebook post or comment, Twitter tweet or other on-line false statement of fact and that reflects negatively on your reputation. Because internet defamation is by definition written rather than oral, it is technically internet libel. Slander involves oral false statements of fact.

Defamation per se involves false statements of fact which presumes damages. That is, no damages must be proven as an element of the defamation, libel or slander claim. Defamation per se occurs in most states when the false internet post, tweet, review or comment:

  • Accuses someone of a crime
  • Alleges that someone has a disease
  • Suggests that a person or business is unfit to conduct their business or trade
  • Imputes sexual misconduct

Internet libel / defamation can negatively affect you on a grand scale. Before the Internet, very few people had a global audience. Now, a simple tweet or blog post has the potential audience of millions across the globe.

An attorney handling an internet defamation case has much bigger challenges than when defamation occurs off-line. Identifying web-site owners can present a challenge. Further, identifying the individual that authored the post can be even more difficult. Identifying the poster is important as the Communications Decency Act may provide protection against laws suits to the owner of the web-site.

There are many specific strategies and procedures for dealing with defamatory statements on the internet. Many strategies require expertise in back-end DNS, domain registrars, domain registrant search, proxy services, Section 230 Immunity under the Communications Decency Act, User Generated Content, IP tracking, ISP subpoenas and related issues under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act.
