Defence against Libel & Slander

There are essentially two forms of defamation – libel and slander. Libel is a more permanent form, whether it appears in writing or online. Slander, generally speaking, is verbal. With the advent of the Internet, individuals have an even greater opportunity to spread untruths about you and/or your business.

Proving a defamation claim can be difficult. You must be able to prove the following:

  • Communication was false
  • Communication was directed specifically at you
  • It was heard by a third party
  • It caused economic loss or harm
