Are trade libel and business defamation the same thing?

No. These terms are often confused with one another, but they actually refer to two different kinds of legal claims. Trade libel occurs when someone knowingly spreads false and disparaging rumors about a specific product or service. Business defamation is similar, but includes false statements about a business owner’s character.

Trade libel and business defamation are both unfair and illegal. To learn more about protecting your business from this kind of mistreatment, contact the Des Moines trade libel and business defamation lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (877) 327-2600.
