Why you should be concerned about defamation and libel


  • Defamation and Libel on Blogs are major headaches

  • When your name is slung around Usenet there is little you can do because that internet vehicle is out of control. Blogs like owned allow posters to leave defamatory messages to many of their sites.

    If you've been fighting to clear your name, and Google refuses to take action against these people, or provide you with more information about who is running the Blogs it's time to fight back.

    Tell us your story here if you want. Posts will be screened, and if they slip by, someone let me know and I will remove them as soon as can.

    Google and their executives have a fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders. If they think that they can ignore complaints from those who have been defamed, then they are wrong.

    So, if you would like me to post your story about defamation and how the owners of the Blog responded just send it to me via e-mail. Within hours of setting up this Blog some idiot started making defamatory comments.

    If you would like to help manage this Blog, let me know, too.

    Thanks for your help and your support.
