Chapter Summary

Article 152 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation (Civil Code) describes additional means of protecting honor, dignity, and business reputation in the event of the dissemination of harmful false information, i.e., the publication of a reply or retraction, or the retraction of the documents containing such information. In accordance with Article 19(4) of the Federal Constitutional Law On the Judicial System of the Russian Federation, the RF Supreme Court has jurisdiction to issue Guiding Explanations on issues of judicial practice. The main difference between the protection of the business reputation of a legal person from that of a of a citizen lies in the fact that compensation for moral damages cannot be applied in cases of protecting the business reputation of a legal person. Judicial practice must itself, in fact, encourage freedom of thought and common sense to take root in society.
