Love Had No Love for Fashion Designer | Online Defamation Law Suits

Posted by admin | February 8th, 2011

Online defamation lawsuits often involve random people accusing each other of the worst sort of acts, usually on some random blog. So often we fail to see the true consequences of online defamation lawsuits.

This Courtney Love lawsuit has made a lot of waves recently, that’s for sure. It’s guaranteed to make a few more before everything is said and done. Although a settlement is likely, it has attracted quite a lot of attention to the problem of online defamation and the lack of legal solutions.

“In some respects, it’s social media on trial,” said Bryan Freedman of Freedman & Taitelman in Los Angeles, who represents Simorangkir. “As more and more people defame people using the Internet as a tool and using social media as the forum, there’s a question of how much you believe what you read.”

The trial would’ve been an interesting spectacle, especially since big personalities like Courtney Love would’ve been involved. But ultimately, this is not the type of trial you want determining the future of jurisprudence regarding online defamation.
