Removing Defamatory Search Engine Results

Toronto defamation lawyer Gil Zvulony was a guest on CBC radio stations across Canada.  He discussed the various challenges people may face in having negative search engine results removed.  Specifically he discussed how US law differs from Canadian law, in that US law grants search engines immunity from liability for defamation, in most cases.

He also addressed some practical ways to get search engine results cleaned up, such as shutting down the underlying websites, suing the poster, and by combating the “bad speech” with “good speech”, using  tools as social media.
