Let’s try to define Defamation of Character and then look at some reasons why it should be executed and prosecuted.
Defamation is the oral or written communication of a false statement about another that unjustly harms their reputation and usually constitutes a tort or crime. In several countries, including South Korea, a true statement can also be considered defamation.
The inception of social media, has created a platform for people to express their opinions. However sometimes the information that they post can hurt the reputation of others. Many of the things people post online, even though the content may be based on opinion rather than fact, can be very hurtful to people in general. Regardless if you are a celebrity, or just someone that is trying to make a buck on the Internet, reputation matters.
I am in no way a Internet celebrity of the year, but I do have myself out online. And once in a while, someone has something negative to say about some thing I have posted.
For some of the people online that have massive exposure and following on the Internet, their reputation is all they really have. Therefore, would it not make sense to have and retain an attorney that can put an end to any of the negative comments or posts online?
In fact, and Internet Marketer, or a Content creator could possibly make a good full-time income by suing people on the Internet that are Posting defamatory comments.
Might be another income stream.
