Harassment Instagram

  • See how we served for the first time ever an harassment injunction against anonymous online user via the social media Instagram 

    The Claimant in the case used the picture-sharing social media service Instagram for his PR business and for social networking. At one point the Claimant started to receive dozens harassing messages via his Instagram account. The Defendant, was, or were anonymous uses who created a number of Instagram accounts which they used to harass their victim. They posted posts and images which were particularly vile and highly offensive.

  • What is the limitation period for online harassment cases?

    Although there are strict time limits set by law when it comes to issuing court proceedings under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, where the claim must be filed within 6 years of the harassing act, an important consideration for anyone who is being harassed, particularly online, is to act expeditiously and without delay.

The apology took the form of a statement in open court read before His Honour Judge Moloney QC on Wednesday 20 May 2015.

    Discovering the identity of internet commentators who post abusive and defamatory content online and who use an anonymous identity to defame you or your business, is often a hugely challenging, if at times impossible task and one that continues to be a global problem for victims of such internet abuse. The police in any jurisdiction will typically be very limited in being able to assist in circumstances of anonymous internet abuse and from
