Internet Defamation Infographic

Do you know what your rights are if something is published online about you or your company that isn’t true? 

The internet is an open forum where information can be posted by the second, so it’s important to know what your options are if someone intently tries to smear your name/brand.

Of course like any dispute, it’s recommended that you contact the other party first and try to figure out a compromise, but if that proves to be unsuccessful, you can go to the courts with your complaint.

The distinction between personal opinion and defamation of you or your company is hard-proof of money loss. If the ruling ends up being awarded to you in your favor, you can get compensated for damages and financial loss.

We do live in a society where people freely sue each other, but it’s good to know what’s legal and illegal especially when it comes to your personal reputation or company’s brand.
