Defamation

Defamation

Defamation is the publication or broadcast of a false statement, which lowers the reputation of a person or company in the eyes of right thinking members of society.

This can arise in a variety of ways, including:

  • Highly critical comment posted online
  • Slanderous newspaper publications
  • Spoken work on a TV or Radio broadcast
  • Written word in a magazine, newspaper or online article
  • Social media posts or comments, such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram
  • Online blogging journals

It is important to understand that every individual is entitled to their good name.  Those victimised by such defamatory statements can apply to the Court for damages and/or a declaratory order.
