Internet harassment legal advice

  • In our younger days, some of us did things we later came to regret. We wronged people or made them upset. Guilty as charged. We can't turn back the wheels of time, however and usually we mature and move on to better and greater things.

    But what if, out of the blue, an indiscretion from 10, 20, or 30 years ago suddenly resurfaces, wreaking havoc on our family life, our business, our achievements, our good name? It resurfaces because someone causes it to, in order to destroy everything we have worked for.

  • The damage to reputation and well-being as result of posts or threats of posts on social media, particularly on Twitter and Instagram is often impossible to quantify. If you have suffered damage to your reputation as a result of being defamed on Twitter, it likely that we can help you seek redress through defamation laws.

  • Injunction against the unknown Defendants to prevent further harassment

    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. They included personal attacks on the victim with a racial and sexual element hard-core sexual images and pictures of beheaded men. The campaign encompassed distressing references to the victim’s family home and parents and it included threats to exacerbate the nature and scale of his campaign of harassment and/ or disclose private information, or purported private information, about the

  • “I instructed Cohen Davis on a very complicated matter of online harassment campaign against myself together with a large group of people. It involved hundreds of internet posts targeting large number of individuals. We needed an harassment injunction to stop the publication of private information about us on the internet
    I am a lawyer myself but deal with a different area of law altogether. One of the main reasons we decided to instruct a firm such as Cohen Davis is that they were the only law firm we found who has an efficient system that is designed to handle large scale online harassment campaigns.
    The firm was undeterred by the scale, any difficulties or challenges along their way and their client care was fantastic. You can contact them 24/7.
    They gave us all rounded advice on privacy,

  • "When harassment occurs on social media we will obtain an injunction, anonymise our client and allow her to continue with uninterrupted use of her social media account."

    This can be particularly beneficial if you are a celebrity or if you depend on the social media account for work.

    Protection from Harassment and a privacy injunction obtained by Cohen Davis in favour of our client in the case of DDF v YYZ (unreported, 5 June 2015).

    In the case of DDF v YYZ, Cohen Davis obtained an injunction against an unknown Instagram user who harassed and cyberbully our client via the social media website Instagram. Our client, who we anonymised in the court order, was working in the entertainment industry and was relying on Instagram for his work as well as for personal communications.

  • Online harassment can occur even if the information published is true

     This is another ground-breaking internet law case by Cohen Davis solicitors. Lawyer Yair Cohen instructed by a former senior employee at the United Nations to put an end to harassment on the internet by another UN employee.

    Protection from Harassment interim injunction obtained by Cohen Davis in favour of former senior UN employee  RADA-ORTIZ and ESPINOSA VADILLO [2015] EWHC 2175 (QB).

    Meet Jesus Espinosa Vadillo, a former United Nations' (“UN”) temporary employee. In 2014 JEV, who worked as an interpreter at the UN's International Maritime Organisation (“IMO”), felt aggrieved about the way he believed he was being treated by his department manager.

  • Being a sex worker does not mean you can't have a private life, says judge as Cohen Davis obtains a privacy injunction for its escort client.

    In yet another ground breaking case, Cohen Davis’ team has obtained one of our most important judgements this year, whilst securing a privacy injunction for one of our clients, a London Escort.

    This case, involved a sex worker who had both false and private information posted about her on the internet. She became the subject of a campaign of harassment, which included the tagging of dozens of pornographic videos with her name. The harassing posts also included references to her sexuality, to her sexual preferences as well as false claims that she was having unprotected sex.

    This followed by further false allegations that she was an HIV/Aids positive. Cohen Davis brought

  • Victims of online harassment, intimidation, and defamation often feel hopeless and powerless to act. In many instances they feel scared and paralysed.

    If you have been a victim of an online reputation attack and have tried to report your attackers to the police, you were probably shocked and disappointed to learn that your local police force either was not interested, didn’t understand the problem, or is underfunded and unable to invest time and resources in investigating your case.

  •  I have been defamed on the internet. What can I do about this?

    The ability to list web pages on the top page of the search results for a long period of time is normally a function of either excellent workmanship or an unintended  random consequence of Google algorithm. Names of individuals and companies are easy targets for the purpose of internet defamation or even just to cause someone reputational, emotional or financial damage. 

  • Injunctions against harassment can be granted by the criminal courts in relation to almost any criminal conviction and by the civil courts in connection with divorce proceedings and other civil legal actions.

    The most common of these types of injunctions are restraining orders, which require a party to refrain from doing certain acts. Breaching a restraining order can result in an immediate remand in custody, a prison sentence and a criminal record.

    Breaches of court orders such as injunctions are generally regarded as being strict liability offences, meaning there is no excuse or defence and no criminal intent by the defendant is required in order to be found guilty. The consequences of breaching a restraining order then, are very serious, yet many criminal lawyers fail to acknowledge them as such especially in cases involving the use of the
