Taking Action Against Libel, Slander, And Commercial Defamation
Commercial Defamation, sometimes called “commercial defamation of character”, is spoken or written words that falsely and negatively reflect on a living person’s reputation. If a person or the news media says or writes something about you that is understood to lower your reputation, or that keeps people from associating with you, commercial defamation has occurred. Slander is spoken commercial defamation and libel is written commercial defamation. If you have been defamed you may seek both actual damages.
