Defamation is when someone spreads something about you that both is not true and that hurts your reputation. There are two different kinds of defamation: libel and slander. Libel is when someone writes something about you that is not true, whereas slander is when someone says something about you that is not true.
For example, if someone posts to an online forum something about you that is not true and that hurts your reputation, that is libel. If someone says something about you during conversation that is not true and that hurts your reputation, that is slander.
Obviously, your reputation is your most precious asset and must be preserved accordingly.
