|Student Sharon has signed up for a business and strategy course in a private school. She is unimpressed by the lecturer and course coverage. A disappointed Sharon seeks a refund from school principal, Marlene. The conversation sours when Marlene declines to refund Sharon's course fees, leading Sharon to threaten legal action and blog against the school. After this fiery confrontation, Sharon angrily publishes a blog entry referring to the school as a "scam operation". She also files a suit against the school in the State Courts of Singapore, for a refund of her course fees. The school retaliates, with a counterclaim of defamation against Sharon for her adverse Internet posts.|
