A defamatory statement is one which tends to injure a person’s reputation in the eyes of reasonable members of society.
Have you been defamed online?
Have you notified the internet service provider and they have failed to respond?
Have anonymous comments been made about you online?
Are you unable to identify the individual or individuals who have defamed you?
In circumstances where a defamed party is unable to identify the author of a defamatory statement on the Internet, such as a tweet, it is possible to seek to hold the Internet service provider or the social media service provider liable.
Have you been ignored by the internet service provider?
An individual’s right to a good name is protected by the Irish Constitution, the Common Law and by Statute. If you are concerned that you have been defamed we offer a free telephone consultation to discuss the issues and any possible avenue of redress. A Court may oblige an (“ISP”) Internet Service Provider to remove any defamatory material once they are on notice that it is hosting defamatory material. Any delay on the part of the ISP to remove the defamatory content once on notice of it could lead the Court to hold that the service provider is responsible as publisher for the defamatory material. In cases of defamation it is imperative that the defamed party takes swift and appropriate action. This can involve injunctive proceedings to ensure that publication ceases, or seeking redress following the publication. Such redress can come in the form of a clarification, apology and a defamation action. It is also possible to apply to retrieve information from an ISP in order to assist a defamed party in identifying the person or persons behind anonymous defamatory comments.
