Defamation is the intentional communication of false information, to a third party, that injures a person's reputation or good name.
Defamation of character is an increasing problem with the widespread use of social media. While many people believe that they can engage in character defamation anonymously, the reality is that there are numerous means and methods to uncover the true identity of those who post defamatory statements and hold them accountable.
