So what prompted this particular PSA? Are you personally embroiled in a case where you said something you shouldn't have?
As I understand it, in order for slander/libel/defamation of character to be prosecuted concerning a business, it has to be proven that they've affected the business owner's livelihood. Which can be difficult to do unless the business owner's profits dropped off dramatically after the innuendos, gossip, and downright lies started.
I know many things about many people; some good, some very bad. Unless they're directly endangering animals, children, or other adults, I keep my mouth shut. How someone conducts their own business has nothing to do with me. If they're bad people, they'll lose clients when people start to wise up.
