How do people talk about you online? Are they always fair? What if you or your company came under criticism, or even under threat of an online attack on your reputation?
The way you, your company or your brand are discussed online will usually reflect how reliable people think you are, how they feel about the quality of your business’ products and services, how they view your integrity. In the digital age, this is hugely important, especially for your current or future customers. Any damning information - even if is it completely false - could damage your reputation for years to come.
Our internet defamation services eliminate and remove defamatory internet content as quickly and efficiently as possible, without drawing unwanted attention to it or worsening the situation.
We can also file an internet defamation lawsuit, and leverage our arsenal of investigative tools and tactics to identify anonymous online perpetrators and hold them liable for their actions.
We pride ourselves on transparent, ethical, cost-effective internet defamation services, and do not take half measures or employ temporary fixes which cause more problems in the long-term.
Potentially damaging information can surface via the traditional media, independent websites, blogs, social media platforms or suggestions and links contained in search engines.
If there is reason to believe this may happen, it is imperative that the individual or companies involved are aware of the potential mechanisms
available to protect themselves.
For businesses and professionals defamed on the internet, most simply want the false content removed. Fortunately, there are a number of ways
to obtain removal, one of which is through a court order.
Websites and other entities do not want to be tasked with having to weigh the facts of any situation and making a judgment call. Therefore, most will not delete content just because a party alleges a post is false.
Most websites will, however, remove content declared false by a court, even though court orders are typically against the actual posters of the
content and not the websites themselves.
In short, court ordered removal involves obtaining a judgment against the poster of defamatory content online and then presenting the court order to the websites (or, when relevant, Google) on which the false
content is appearing.
The first step is usually to complain directly to the relevant website and/or to the search engine(s) demanding the immediate take down of the relevant damaging information. In addition to the relevant law,
breach of the search engines’ own terms and conditions can often be claimed and of any other applicable terms and conditions.
