At this presentation, the speakers will provide an overview of defamation law and how the law has evolved in light of the Internet. They will also discuss Petro-Lubricant Testing Labs., Inc. v. Adelman, 233 N.J. 236 (2018), which established a test for determining what constitutes a republication of defamatory material, thereby retriggering the statute of limitations for defamation. Additionally, they will discuss other states’ approaches to republication on the Internet, as well as the immunity provided by the Communications Decency Act, 47 U.S.C. 230.
