Today in Ukraine there is a certain problem of compensation for non-pecuniary damage to legal entities, especially when such non-pecuniary damage is caused by the dissemination of inaccurate information that violates the right to inviolability of business reputation.

Quite often the courts refuse to satisfy the claims of plaintiffs in such cases, justifying such decisions by the fact that moral damage can be inflicted only on individuals, as a legal entity can not suffer mental distress and anxiety, impairment or incapacity.

Experts who conduct psycho-sociological examinations often hold a similar position, simply refusing to conduct such an examination, noting that a legal entity cannot suffer moral damage.

So can a legal entity suffer moral damage? What is the moral damage of a legal entity and how to compensate it?
