Reputation in a Networked World: Revisiting the Social Foundations of Defamation Law. Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review 2010 The article explores the social foundations of defamation law as of 2010 and the concept of reputation amid the emergence of online platforms such as blogs, social networks and discussion forums. It recounts the definition of reputation and its importance in humans and other social species as part of a set of feedback mechanisms within human social systems and a major factor in evolution. Described is how reputational information is used, created, and disseminated by a networked society. The court case about the editing of celebrity Ron Livingston's Wikipedia entry to suggests that he is gay is also discussed. It is inferred that private online intermediaries like content hosts and search providers would be helpful in mitigating reputational harms. 0 0
