Protection of honor, dignity and business reputation


Reputation plays an important role in doing business, interaction with partners and in the private life of every person. Defective information published in the press, sounded in broadcast media, distributed via the Internet or communicated in writing or orally can complicate both private and business life. That is why the honor and dignity of an individual, as well as the business reputation of a company often require protection.

In case of dissemination of defamatory information, the affected party is entitled to demand refutation of such information, removal it from the network and suspension of distribution of physical storage media on which such information is contained, as well as demand of a compensation for non-pecuniary damage.
