Are E-Mail And On-Line Activities Subject To Laws Relating To Defamation?

Yes, laws relating to defamation are applicable to e­mail and other online activities. For example, if a person commits libel against you through e­mail or other on­line activities, the publisher, and any re­publisher, of the offensive statement can be held accountable for damages. This is why it is wise to be careful about anything you write in an e­mail message or online chat room. If the victim is harmed by your action, you can be held liable for his or her losses.

If you think you've been defamed by false information passed on by a computer channel, or worry about whether you can make an aggressive advertising claim, it might be worth talking to a qualified lawyer.
