Sue Scheff:

As my story reaches around the world, more and more people are beginning aware of the consequences of Internet Defamation. Free Speech is still very much alive, but it will not condone defamation.

Sue Scheff on the Morning Show with Mike and Juliet

After appearing on the Morning Show with Mike and Juliet, again I was amazed at all the emails I received of people that have been victimized in Cyberspace.

It is important to remember that it is not about "free speech" - it is about defamation and libelous comments that can be held accountable. My $11.3M jury verdict for damages speaks volumes that free speech does not condone defamation.

Sue Scheff continuing to speak out.....

As both a Parent Advocate and a person that has been a victim of Internet Defamation, I continue to receive emails from other parents and others that have been abused online in the Cyberspace World.

While I was being interviewing by Martin Bashir (20/20 ABC News i-Caught) he asked me why I continue with my advocacy after I had been so maliciously attacked..... The answer was easy - for my daughter, for all the parents out there that may fall into the web of deceit I did. As far as being a victim of Internet Defamation, it is part of being someone that wants to make a difference, and I believe that is exactly what I am doing.

Everyday I received emails from people of gratitude and it confirms to me I am doing the right thing. There will always be critics in no matter what we do in life, but as long as you believe in what you do and do it for the right reasons, you will always succeed.

After 7+ years of my successful organization, PURE, I know we are making a difference!

Sue Scheff on Media Attention

After having major media outlets interested in my story and the priceless service of Reputation Defender and MyEdge - there will always be people that feel this is a way to freeze their freedom of speech.

It couldn't be further from the truth. Your first amendment doesn't condone defamation and other libelous acts. My $11.3M "jury verdict for damages" - not a default verdict - was rendered after hours of deliberation and not taken lightly. The jurors went through hundreds of defamatory posts.

All the reputable media outlets I interviewed with, including Washington Post, Forbes, San Francisco Chronicle, Wall Street Journal, 20/20 ABC News and others know my whole story - both victorious jury trials - as well as my mistakes.

I have made a lot of mistakes, as many have, but I am willing to share them to help others. It may put me in the hot seat, however the good that comes from it is worth it.
