Defamation Results from an Erroneously Published Statement
Defamation results from an inaccurate or libelous published statement. Traditional defamation claims resulted from newspaper articles and through conversation. Today, the vast majority of defamation cases originate in digital communication on the internet. The emergence of social media, video communication, and review websites creates a new era of internet defamation issues. Cyber attacks can have catastrophic consequences for both individuals and businesses. When harmful and unwanted content is posted anonymously, perpetrators must be identified immediately to control the reputational damage.

As trusted subject matter experts, we understand the legal nuances of internet defamation, libel, and slander. Courts have established precedence for how they treat off-line and online defamation.
