Defamation is a catchall phrase which refers to both libel and slander. Slander defamation is spoken. On the Internet, this usually means someone posted the defamatory statement in the video or audio file. Defamation libel is written defamation. This by far is the most common form of the Internet defamation because it is so easy to post text on any website through a comment or other post.

Slander defamation is when someone speaks about you in a defamatory way, as opposed to written defamation which is libel.
