Retraction requests are generally sought by individuals, as opposed to companies, and are more successful when pursued by an individual due to the larger damages usually awarded in such situations. These requests can be made of website owners as well as the traditional media. Website owners are just as liable and can be prosecuted in any state, due to the national, if not international, nature of their distribution. 1. Make multiple copies.
