Know your legal rights when dealing with defamatory material.
Although the definition of defamation can vary from state to state, most agree that defamation is a false statement, published or communicated to another person, which causes injury to the subject of the statement. The statement must be a false statement of fact; therefore, truth is an absolute defense. Defamation laws vary from state to state, including anti-SLAPP laws that provide for early dismissal or meritless lawsuits. In this video our speaker, Amanda Kane Rapp, discusses the details behind defamation, slander and libel and reviews what publication and republication of defamatory materials can look like.
