A defamation is a false statement that causes harm and its sole purpose is to damage an individual or business.

A negative review is (usually) an honest review of your experience of a particular service/product etc and if you found the product/service to be of low standard then you are just stating your "honest" opinion.

If you post a negative review and the company (or sometimes a hired legal team) contacts you, there is a good chance that with a little interaction the said company can work with you and come to a resolve you both are satisfied with, thus you may retract your review and alter it accordingly.

If on the other hand, you have written a slanderous review to hurt the business, then there is little chance that one will be willing to remove their review and things can sometimes get a little sticky as one then enters a tit-for-tat game.

Conclusion - Defamation is usually slanderous and one will not alter their comments as they set out to purposely hurt a company.

Slander is a very serious thing when someone says false things about another online. It can result in a lawsuit. Even if another family member slanders you online and doesn't say your name.
