Defamation can have a damaging impact on an individual’s good name and reputation. False or derogatory communications, whether in a verbal or written form, can also have serious effects on one’s psyche. All around, it’s very harmful and stressful.
Defamation can be categorized as libel or slander. Libel can refer to insulting, offensive or untrue statements, or anything published in print or writing or media broadcasts, such as over TV, in a film or the radio. Slander is the verbal form of these kinds of statements. Both libel and slander can be extremely detrimental, and in many cases, can turn into a very ugly legal battle.
