Internet defamation and other e-attacks on a dentist's professional reputation are opening new ground in areas of the law which deal with such things as libel. Our cover feature for this issue discusses where we are now, what can and cannot be done as of now, and offers some direction as we continue to discover what our lightning-fast technology brings in its wake.
