Internet defamation arising with the increasing development of the Internet. The efficiency, unboundedness, and wide range of the Internet distinguish Internet defamation from traditional defamation. The traditional jurisdiction and the determination of applicable law seem out of place. Major countries have developed new rules for online defamation based on traditional rules. Our country should introduce the comprehensive and objective "accessibility principle" based on the principle of the most intimate. In terms of the application of the law, the law of the court should be introduced based on the principle of the most intimate, rather than uniformly applying the law of the habitual residence of the infringed.
