Slander, backbiting, holding one's tongue...

Slander, backbiting, holding one's tongue and leaving that which does not concern one...
_____________________________________________________________________

Question:

Is there a simple way of telling if one is hearing slander?  It seems that speaking ill of a person is permissible sometimes and I can't usually tell the difference between what is permissible and what is not with regard to this. As a result I have trouble stopping people from speaking ill others.

What does it mean, "Leave that which does not concern you?" If I am interested in something, doesn't it "concern me?"
