What Is Internet Defamation Law?
Internet Defamation Law exists to regulate relations between Victim and Slander. In 1996 the US Congress passed the Communication Decency Act. The Act prohibits starting court cases against ISPs, social media platforms, and website hosts. Moreover, it might be used to defend yourself in court in defamatory lawsuits against the author. However, this law wasn't implemented to protect one's reputation from defamatory content online.
The origins of Internet Defamation Law lie in the court decision in the Gutnick case. In October of 2000, Dow Jones published an article in Barron's magazine titled 'unholy gains'. This article contained harmful information about Melbourne operating businessman Mr. Joseph Gutnick. Of half of a million online magazine subscribers, 1700 were Australians. Mr. Gutnick has started legal proceedings against Dow Jones Inc. The court's decision was in Gutnick's favor, and the trial became a precedent for defamatory decisions regarding online content. In further years, similar cases came all over the world. Nowadays, we have a base of Internet Defamation Law built on these cases.

Here is a Brief Description of Defamation Lawsuit
Choice of Defamatory law depends on the state and country, but all of them have common criteria that everyone should suit. Usually, to start a court procedure you need to prove:
- Someone made a defamatory statement. Here you should prove the fact of the statement expression.
- The publication of the statement. In the legal field, it means that a third party had to see this statement somewhere.
- This statement is harmfully affecting you. Here you need to estimate and show the losses this statement caused you.
- This exact statement was false. A defamatory statement will be only considered as such if the statement is false, otherwise, you have lost from the start.
- The statement is out of the frames of the privileged category.
