Why online reputation protection and management is important:
Internet defamation is such a hard hitting form of slander simply because its effects are so far reaching—anyone who has access to a computer and the internet could stumble upon the defamatory comments(s) made against you and, according to statistics, 78% of the North American population is now connected. Combined with the fact that more people are taking product and service reviews into consideration prior to making purchases or hiring service providers—evident by the growing number of review sites cropping up on the internet—gives you more than justified reason to maintain your good name. Whether online defamation occurs against your business or yourself personally, taking steps to remove or deflect the online slander are time and resources well spent.
I’ve been the victim of online libel. At what point should I contact an internet defamation attorney?
If you plan to take action, the answer is as soon as possible. There is a statute of limitation on defamation which, in most states, is a one year period. It’s also important that you keep records of said defamatory comments—print-outs and screen captures are a good start and can assist the Internet defamation lawyer during the discovery process.
Can You Identify Who Posted the Defamatory Comments?
There are a number of factors invloved in determining whether or not the identity of the defamer can be tracked down—for example, was the defamatory comment posted directly in a blog post or website article, or was it posted as a comment to an article, in a forum or other user generated content site? If a third party is involved and the internet defamation that takes place anonymously, a lawsuit may be required to trace the identity of the defamatory poster in order to issue a subpoena to the website host for IP identification.
