The Evolution of the Canvas of Defamation
As we have become a more digitally connected society, we have opened up our lives to the criticism of anyone with an internet connection. Our mothers would have said “leave it be, walk away”, but when that criticism comes in the form of a defamatory online review of a business that you have worked decades to build…well…sometimes you have to do more than just walk away.
There are, no doubt, many benefits to the accessibility of the online world. There are also a number of great benefits to review websites and feedback forums, but when these tools are used with malice in an effort to injure or damage your business and reputation, something needs to be done.
