  Author: Gennady Silvanovich, lawyer of Dynasty Law & Investment In our country, the protection of reputation, honor and dignity does not belong to the popular category of litigation, as it is difficult to be sure that the court will accept the statements of the future defendant as really violating the rights of the plaintiff, and not reduce them to ordinary judgments. There are more and more cases of posting information that may damage the honor, dignity or business reputation of a person on the Internet. In this case, the proper defendant is the author of the relevant information material and the owner of the website, which must be identified and stated in the statement of claim, which in practice can be quite difficult to implement.

In our country, the protection of reputation, honor and dignity does not belong to the popular category of litigation, as it is difficult to be sure that the court will accept the statements of the future defendant as really violating the rights of the plaintiff, and not reduce them to ordinary judgments.

There are more and more cases of posting information that may damage the honor, dignity or business reputation of a person on the Internet. In this case, the proper defendant is the author of the relevant information material and the owner of the website, which must be identified and stated in the statement of claim, which in practice can be quite difficult to implement.

It should also be emphasized that the current legislation does not explicitly define the concept of honor, dignity or business reputation.

According to current case law, dignity is the recognition of the value of each individual as a unique whole organism in which biological, psychological and social factors are interrelated. reputation is understood as a person’s acquired public assessment of his business and professional qualities in the performance of certain duties.

In addition, before going to court to resolve any dispute regarding the protection of honor, dignity and business reputation, it is necessary to separate evaluative judgments from factual statements that may be true or unreliable. And only allegations that are untrue can be refuted in court.

Thus, for proper judicial protection and objective consideration of the case, it is necessary not only to determine the defendant in advance, evaluate the available evidence and properly use the law, but to study the nature of the information disseminated, apply in-depth analysis of statements, which neither plaintiffs in their lawsuits , nor do judges usually do so during the proceedings. The result is, for example, an obligation to block a website or refute the entire article, rather than a specific page of information on the Internet, or specific statements, or the court refuses to satisfy claims because they are unfounded.

Despite the complexity and ambiguity of this category of cases, Dynasty Law & Investment specialists have extensive experience in successfully protecting violated clients’ rights and will help you protect your honor, dignity and business reputation.
