First a few legal definitions:
- Defamation is the issuance of a false statement about another person or entity, which causes that person or entity to suffer harm.
- Slander is the making of non-fixed defamatory statements, such as spoken words.
- Libel is the making of fixed defamatory statements, such as words published in a magazine or newspaper, or on the Internet.
An absolute defense to an action for defamation is the “truth;” if the statements are true, there is no defamation. Another defense is "opinion,” everyone has the right to state an opinion. As stated on the Read First page of the TKDTutor.com web site, the site expresses the opinion of TKDTutor, other opinions may differ.
