Our boutique civil litigation law firm in Singapore has recently been engaged by defendants in relation to social media defamation lawsuits commenced in Singapore.
When posting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Youtube or on your personal blog, you need to be careful about what you post, especially if your posts are accessible to the general public and have not been made private or restricted to the people that “follow” or “friend” your account.
The Singapore courts will award damages to those who have been defamed by others on the internet, and it is not a defence to say that you did not use your real name or you did not mean to publish the defamatory words.
