“There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about”
– Oscar Wilde

Whilst great in sentiment, the above quote is not always the case, particularly if what is being said isn’t true. The right to one’s good name is protected by law.

Essentially, an individual has protection against a defamatory statement that has been publicised by having the right of a Court for an application for Declaratory Order or an action for damages for defamation.
