Defamation on the Internet

Defamation on the internet is the one when a defamatory statement is made online or via social media – such as through Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn etc. which includes the written (or “post”) words.

These days internet and social forums are undoubtedly large platforms for people and society for publicity, however they are possibly the effective breeding grounds for abusive statements as well. There has been an important debate about the effects of publishing on the Internet and whether different legal principles have to be created or specific actions should be taken against the loss for the defamation by the internet publications.

The Internet is full of different kinds of contents, where one can knowingly or unknowingly drop a potentially defamatory comment or post. If you find that if there is a publication that offends you or harms you personally or professionally, then you can get it confirmed by a friend or a reader who first saw it on the website, to establish the case against the culprit and protect yourself from the harm.

Can you claim against the blog or a publication that is defamatory to you?

If you find any defamatory information on internet by a blogger or a publication party, being posted to harm your reputation, you may claim defamatory in this case. Similarly, if there are any defaming information available on any website that causes harm to you, can be claimed.
