Solution

Defamation is literally de-faming (harming, destroying, or disparaging) another’s reputation to the extent that it causes someone legal injury. Slander is defamation by speaking or gestures, while libel is defamation by means of writing or other permanent form. Note, however, that defamation occurs only if there is a false statement of fact; it does not occur when a person merely states their opinion (for example, chocolate tastes "good").
