Defamation of a restaurant on TripAdvisor

Defamation on TripAdvisor

In what is believed to be a legal first in Canada — and a potential landmark case that could help to define the limits of free speech in cyberspace — a hotel is suing a former guest for $95,000 in damages over a review he wrote on the travel site TripAdvisor.

It also wants the negative review, which is still online, taken down.
