APR Flash Card: Defamation

Here's the Tuesday APR Tip. Hey look, it's actually on Tuesday!

Category: Law
Front Defamation
Back: Communication that hurts someone's reputation, must be untrue. To be defamed or damaged one must prove hatred, contempt, ridicule.

Written or pictorial defamation is known as libel; spoken or verbal defamation is known as slander and need not be spoken in a public setting.

Wow, well that was thrilling I know. But ethics and law make up 15% of the computer-based examination for the APR. So if you are pursuing your accreditation, you are going to get very familiar with all kinds of fascinating information like this.
