What is Defamation and How do I Know if I have a Case?

Defamation is a false statement made by one individual about another. This statement attempts to discredit that person’s character, reputation or creditworthiness. In order to be defamatory, such a statement must be communicated to at least one other person. There are two types of defamation:

Libel: in which the publication of an untrue statement or allegation causes severe damage to reputation;

Slander: in which the damaging allegation is by way of an untrue spoken statement.

Any claim of libel, slander, malicious falsehood or pre-publication advice can be made in relation to statements made in:

  • Newspaper and magazine articles
  • E-mails
  • Employee references
  • Advertising materials
  • Websites, internet chatrooms and forums
  • Television and radio broadcasts
  • Social media.
