Defamation is making a false statement that harms the reputation of another person or business, and comes in two forms – libel and slander. Slander occurs when someone makes a false defamatory statement verbally. Libel occurs when someone makes a false defamatory statement in writing. These damaging statements can’t simply be someone’s opinion, though. For a false statement to be considered defamation, it must be presented as fact.
