Repair Reputation Damage, Control Your Name and Dominate Your Search Results with Proven Online Reputation Management Solutions

 

The best approach for removing online defamatory content is dependent upon the circumstances surrounding each individual case, so it is important to work with an experienced law firm that is dedicated solely to Internet defamation matters.

 

While slander (spoken defamation) and libel (written defamation) statutes are nuanced, and vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, the basic definition of defamation reads:

 

defamation, n. (14c) 1. The act of harming the reputation of another by making a false statement to a third person.

 

If the alleged defamation involves a matter of public concern, the plaintiff is constitutionally required to prove both the statement’s falsity and the defendant’s fault. 2. A false written or oral statement that damages another’s reputation. See LIBEL; SLANDER. Cf. (Black’s Law Dictionary, Ninth Edition) .

 

Our business online reputation management services offer businesses small and large relief and from everything from bad online reviews, to false remarks posted to consumer complaint sites, to legal cases, and provide a road to successful business reputation recovery.

 

In order for a statement to be considered false, in the context of a slander or libel lawsuit, it must be provably false. To illustrate, you likely won’t get far suing someone because they called you “a sorry excuse for a human being” because morality is subjective and one person’s “sorry excuse” could be another person’s “hero.” Now, if someone said you “stole money to finance your start-up” – and you didn’t – there’s a good chance you’d emerge victorious in a defamation lawsuit.

 

Most experts define slander as a comment that can be proven false and that does damage in some way. The comment outlined above might be considered slander upon first glance, for example, if the targets of the rant were never convicted of theft. They aren't "robbers," by this yardstick, and this comment could be slanderous if the targets could prove that the comments had harmed them in some way. Unfortunately, proving that a comment is false can be exceedingly difficult. The writer can claim that the statements were made in self-defense, as one blogger puts it, or that the writer was just performing a duty to inform others. The cases could drag on for months as lawyers parse out the semantics and meaning of each statement in the rant.

 

Additionally, just finding the writer of the rant can be difficult. Writers can post their comments anonymously, and while the courts have determined that sites should provide the name of anonymous posters when they're asked to do so, some sites don't gather enough information from their users to comply with this rule. They may not know the real names of their users, or their true email addresses. Anyone with a free email account and access to a Wi-Fi spot can quickly stay anonymous, meaning that the victim will have no person to sue. Our commitment to excellence is evident in the thoroughness of the campaigns that we launch for our customers. With close to a 99% success-rate in the online reputation repair projects we've taken on, our performance speaks for itself.

 

In the past, companies have attempted to sue the web companies that host the dangerous comments, but these cases tend to fail before they end up in a court of law. Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act specifies that a company that hosts web comments isn't responsible for those comments, as long as said company doesn't edit the comments in a meaningful way. Heading back to the original example, if PissedConsumer.com had edited the poster's comments for clarity, perhaps a person could sue that company for slander. But just hosting free-form comments is protected activity, whether it's slanderous or not.
