Protect your company and clients - learn key strategies for removing defamatory content from the Internet.

Online reputation attacks have a lasting damaging effect on an individual or business. This topic provides practical counseling about proactive steps that can help limit the damage created by negative content on the Internet, and examines the legal system's role in protecting victims of cyber-defamation.

It should be particularly of interest to attorneys and in-house counsel who strive to limit the often widespread and long-lasting harm caused by a reputation attack. Examples of responses to cyber-defamation will illustrate that defamation is not protected speech and that attorneys have options available to them to protect their clients' hard-earned reputation.
