Libel and Slander

You’ve worked hard to build a strong and positive reputation; one on which you are building your business, your legacy, and your family name. You have put a lot of time and effort into making a name for yourself that brings to mind the good you do, the great services or products you offer, or the greatness of your family line.

Your reputation is everything to you, and someone has dared to commit libel and/or slander against you. What can you do?

What is libel?

Libel is the purposeful act of telling an untruth about someone using print mediums such as newspapers, magazines, online media, etc. The act of libel includes the intention to ridicule, hurt, defame, or to incite the hatred or scorn of others against another person. This is a form of personal injury that can do more damage than any actual physical injury.

What is slander?

Slander is the purposeful act of telling an untruth about someone using spoken mediums such as radio, television, online video, etc. The act of slander includes the intention to ridicule, hurt, defame, or to incite others to hate, scorn, or act out against another person. This is also a form of personal injury because it actually injures your reputation as a person, business, or family.
