The role of websites and social media forums in influencing public opinion today is undeniable. A single post — accurate or otherwise — can reach millions in minutes. Separating the truth from propaganda and outright malicious attacks is a challenge for even the most educated consumer. Assessing whether someone's legal rights have been violated through online activity is also a complex matter.
