Online Defamation and Website Removal
Re-Broadcast on December 8, 2017
It is estimated that 40,000 Google search queries occur every second. Whether looking for a health care provider or where to eat dinner, Americans are dependent on the internet for their main source of information. For individuals and businesses, their online reputation is imperative as future customers, prospective employers, and even family members rely on websites to provide truthful and accurate information. However, there has been a growing trend of websites containing false information that creates irreparable harm. This course, presented by Daniel Szalkiewicz, focuses on what defines a defamatory website and addresses the basic challenges facing internet defamation practitioners.
This course is co-sponsored by Wolters Kluwer.
Key topics to be discussed:
• Identify what a defamatory statement is, including how to analyze the actual words and location where the statement is made online
• Obtain a basic understanding of the Communications Decency Act and how it affects plaintiffs
• Discuss challenges in obtaining injunctive relief and court orders to have websites removed

myLawCLE will seek credit where attending attorneys are primarily licensed for all of its live webinars and live teleconferences, except in states which allow for reciprocity (see reciprocity section below). Credit for CLE in a self-study format is sought for in most states; however, some states do not allow for CLE credit to be earned in a self-study format (see the self-study section below). Many states typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program. Credit hours granted are subject to approval from each state.
Additionally, some states allow for credit to be granted on a 1:1 reciprocal basis for courses approved in another mandatory CLE jurisdiction state. This is known as a reciprocity provision and includes the following states: AK, AR, CO, FL, ME, MT, ND, NH, NJ, NY, PR, and SD. myLawCLE does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars or teleconferences in these states.
myLawCLE will seek on-demand approval in all states except Virginia and Arkansas (outside reciprocal provisions stated above).
