The internet and social media are uniquely effective breeding grounds for defamation. Though both have played a significant role in improving communications and accessibility to data, they also make it surprisingly easy, and sometimes even rewarding, to share sensational information without any fact-checking or regulation. Lawyers and their clients are dealing with allegations of web-based defamation on an increasing basis. This makes it vital for all attorneys to understand the landscape of online defamation and defamation law. In this book, we highlight non-litigation and litigation strategies when dealing with an anonymous Internet defamer.
