How to remove defamatory statements from Google

The law in the UK provides various methods and techniques to help you remove defamatory statements from Google searches. The law of libel defamation is the most obvious one, but it has its own limitations.

The most common limitation on using defamation law to remove defamatory statements from Google is the limitation prior.

The limitation period says that in most cases, you must commence legal proceedings for defamation within 12 months of the defamatory post being published.

Other legal methods to remove defamatory statements from Google include using harassment law, where the limitation period is much longer.

Often defamatory statements also have harassment elements to them. The courts, however, are reluctant to allow claimants to use harassment law just in order to bypass the limitation period of defamation.

Another method, which is very helpful if you wish to remove defamatory statements from Google, is to use data protection law. Data protection law can help you remove defamatory statements form Google but also from the source of the information.

With data protection law, the statement in relation to you only needs to be inaccurate or incorrect for it to be capable of being removed from Google search results, which is much easier to show than under defamation law, where the statement must be substantially false.
