Ohio Defamation Law Fact: Ohio’s defamation statute of limitations required libel and slander plaintiffs bring their claim within one year after the cause of action has accrued. Typically, a cause of action will be deemed to have accrued on the date the plaintiff first discovers the defamatory publication. However, keep in mind that the ‘Single Publication’ rule has been enforced by some Ohio courts, a legal rule which deems a libel claim to have accrued upon the first publication of the matter complained of.

The Brass Tacks: What is ReportCheatingWife.com?
Boasting the slogan “Let’s expose cheating wives together!”, ReportCheatingWife.com is pretty straight-forward – an online platform and bulletin board for users to report their unfaithful and cheating wives. However; ReportCheatingWife isn’t just for cheating wives, it extends to all spouses or lovers who have been unfaithful. And, although ReportCheatingWife.com might seem like it’s well-intentioned and seeking to protect individuals from unfaithful spouses, it’s unfortunately morphed into a platform of baseless and false allegations. Such allegations ultimately threaten both one’s personal and professional reputation. When landing on the ReportCheatingWife.com homepage, users are confronted with countless infidelity shaming posts, some with pictures. They’re also prompted to “Report Cheater’, where they can input a title, descriptive report, photograph, and more. Posters may also select from a list of categories (generally relegated to state) to further enable users to sift through the content more easily. Having only gained traction in late-2018, ReportCheatingWife.com is a relatively new user-generated content platform (UGC) for users to craft detailed reports about current and past unfaithful lovers and spouses. According to marketing analytics and keyword research platform, SEMRush, ReportCheatingWife.com averages about 70 organic searches per day and has over 88,000 backlinks to their website. Additionally, they rank on the first page for several individual names, making it a deadly platform for users who have been maliciously or falsely accused. Would you wanted a malicious and false accusation showing on the first page of Google after ‘Googling’ your name? In the next section, we’re going to walk you through how to secure a guaranteed removal of false and libelous content from ReportCheatingWife.com.
U.S. Defamation Law Fact: In order for a defamation plaintiff to succeed in their claim, most states typically require they prove the following four elements; (1) A false statement of fact which is of and concerning the plaintiff made to a third-party, (2) The communication or publication to a third-party was unprivileged, (3) The publisher/communicator acted with at least negligence when communicating/publishing the statement, (4) The statement caused damages to a party’s reputation.

Know that online defamation law is a highly nuanced area of law, with states differing in their approach to content removals, so it’s extremely important you contact an experienced Internet defamation removal attorney before commencing with the removal.

It’s also important to understand that most cheater shaming and infidelity exposing websites are user-generated content platforms, and protected under a landmark piece of Internet legislation (The Communications Decency Act) – so holding a website liable for online defamation is typically out of the question. At Minc Law, we can help find and identify malicious online trolls and defamers and hold them liable. It’s time to put an end to the malicious and false attacks today. What are you waiting for?

Live streams streams which are not recorded may however possibly be considered slander.

Three Famous Internet Defamation Cases
The rise of social media and other user-generated content platforms has resulted in not only an increase in the dissemination of positive and constructive information, but online defamation and libel as well. In this section, we’re going to walk you through three famous Internet defamation cases which show just how online defamation and unfounded attacks can stand to affect your life. And, you might just be surprised to see how a libelous comment made in one country could ultimately land you in hot water when travelling to another.
1. Dick Anagnost v. The Mortgage Specialists, Inc.
In what was considered the largest personal injury settlement in the state of New Hampshire (to date), a local business owner was ordered to pay three men a total sum of $274.5 million in 2017 after publicly calling all three of them money launderers and drug dealers. The case of Anagnost v. The Mortgage Specialists was one for the records, after Michael Gill, of “The Mortgage Specialists” posted false allegations, photographs, and personal information of the victims on billboards outside of three of his business locations (along with one his website) accusing three men of countless unsavory acts. Gill subsequently appealed the decision, however, the court ultimately dismissed the appeal, noting that “oral argument is unnecessary in this case,” and “that the defendants’ brief contains no statement of questions presented for review; nor does it contain specific references to any portion of the record where the issues on appeal were raised in trial court.”
2. British Woman Faces Jailing in Dubai For Facebook Post
Have you ever published something on the Internet that you weren’t proud of or attacked a person online (even in a mild manner)? One British woman is facing potential jail time in Dubai for a three-year-old Facebook post in which she called her ex-husband’s new wife as a “horse.” Britain’s Foreign Office confirmed with the BBC that a London woman, Laleh Shahravesh, was being detained in the Arab city due to their strict laws concerning online defamation. After landing in Dubai to attend her ex-husband’s funeral, Shahravesh was detained by Dubai authorities, and subsequently charged with defamation for comments she made on Facebook about her ex-husband’s wife. Specifically, under the UAE’s cybercrime laws, individuals may be fined and even sentenced to prison for libelous and defamatory statements made on the Internet. At present, Shahravesh faces up to two years in jail or a fine of roughly USD $65,000 – even though she wasn’t even in the United Arab Emirates when the comments/insults were posted.
3. Hustler Magazine v. Falwell
In 1988, monthly softcore pornographic magazine Hustler was at the center of a defamation suit after publishing a parody advertisement in their magazine portraying famous political commentator, Southern Baptist pastor, and televangelist Jerry Falwell as an incestuous drunkard. The Hustler parody mimicked a popular advertising campaign that was airing at the time by Italian liqueur Campari, which interviewed celebrities about their “first time” – a double-entendre mixing their first time drinking Campari and first sexual experience. In Hustler’s parody, Falwell reveals his first sexual encounter was with his mother in their outhouse, while drunk off Campari. While crude, the advertisement did carry a disclaimer with small print at the bottom, noting that it should not be taken seriously. Falwell subsequently sued Hustler for libel, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and invasion of privacy. The jury found in favor of Hustler in regards to the libel claim, noting that parody (one of the core defenses to defamation claims) could not be reasonably understood to be alluding to actual facts or events. The jury did however rule in favor of Falwell for the intentional infliction of emotional distress claim, ultimately awarding him USD $150,000 in damages.
Defamation Law Fact: Google and YouTube both define defamation as “any untrue statement that is harmful to someone’s reputation or causes someone to be shunned or avoided.” When determining whether to block content or not, they both take into account local legal considerations, and do require a court order in certain instances. Always make sure to preserve evidence and be able to backup your claim with supporting statements as to how a piece of online content specifically damages your reputation.
