Defamation of character is when someone communicates false information about you (or your business) that changes people’s perception in a negative way and results in damage to your reputation.

Slander and libel are both types of defamation.  Libel is when someone publishes a false statement about you (or your business) in a permanent form, such as writing, in pictures or during a broadcast and slander refers to false spoken statements.  This can include posts on social media platforms.
