Social Media Defamation

Social Media Defamation

Defamation occurs when a person intentionally spreads information about another person and the information damages their reputation. Call Bennett & Philp Lawyers on +61 7 3001 2999 if someone has tarnished your reputation.

With the proliferation of online communications through social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, there has been an exponential growth in online defamation.

Often, such material is published with a degree of anonymity by individuals who seek to mask their identity by the use of pseudonyms and false Facebook profiles.

We have enjoyed considerable success in acting on behalf of clients in having such rogue Facebook profiles closed down or removed.

We have also enjoyed similar results in having Google remove search results that link to defamatory Internet forums.
