Everyone has the right to protect their good name and reputation, something that may have been earned over many years and it is something that can easily damaged or lost overnight.
We live in a time where social media platforms have given people, anonymously or otherwise, the means to make statements or comments about a person that are false, misleading or untrue. Online commentators often think they can post or comment on matters without any consequences but statements which are false and injurious can result in significant awards of compensation to injured parties.
