What are the ingredients of defamation?
Defamation- is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, or govern…ment, negative image. The two types are slander (for spoken words), and libel (for written or published words). It is usually, but not always, a requirement that this claim be false and that the publication is communicated to someone other than the person defamed.

The Tort of defamation looks upon when a person is affected in many ways! For example when the media makes false alligations about the person which is seen as an untrue! And t…herefore it affects the person and damages he/she reputation in life! Added: Legal Definition: "Defamation is an act of communication that causes someone to be shamed, ridiculed, held in contempt, lowered in the estimation of the community, or to lose employment status or earnings or otherwise suffer a damaged reputation." Defamation is primarily covered under state law, but its limitation is subject to the First Amendment which Constitutionally protects and guarantees the right of of free speech.

Defamation includes making false and derogatory accusations against someone, either directly or implicitly (innuendo). It includes such statements both when made orally (sland…er) and in writing (libel). It is unlawful to publish defamatory statements, so it would be impossible to legally give real examples. However, since it is impossible to defame a fictional character, it would not be defamatory to say that Lord Greystoke was raised by apes, since that would be true, but it would be defamatory to say that he was a cannibal, since that is not only untrue but also derogatory (it would expose him to contempt or ridicule).
A suit for defamation would be a civil suit. There are no statutory punishment or jail time for civil offenses, the case would most probably be settled with a monetary awa…rd. Edited to add: In addition to monetary damages, a successful defamation plaintiff, in many cases, can also get a court order forcing a website to remove the defamatory content.

Defecation takes place in a restroom or bathroom, while defending oneself from defamation takes place in a courtroom.
