  • Defamation and injunctions lawyers

    Can I obtain an injunction against Google?

    The first UK Google injunction was obtained in 2011 by Yair Cohen.  The order required Google to reveal personal details of individuals who were defaming a UK business on the internet.

    The claimant, who was seeking the injunction against Google was a news publishing group, Wyvern Media, which at the time was servicing tens of thousands of customers each year. Despite Wyvern's genuine attempt to satisfy them all, a small number of customers remained disgruntled.

    Many business owners who find themselves victims of the 1 in 5 (acknowledged!) fake reviews on Yelp.com will admit that fake reviews are a business killer.

  • Is it illegal to fake online reviews?‎

    Are fake reviews legal in the UK?

    Writing a fake online review has never been easier. A fast growing industry of online review ‎websites leaves very little hope to those business owners who want to play it fair. ‎

    The number of fake online reviews is constantly growing. A significant number of fake online ‎reviews are written by business owners who often act in despair after becoming ‎victims of fake online reviews.‎

  • The opportunity - a right to be forgotten

    Adverse results from search engines can often have severe consequences, sometimes affecting you as an individual, sometimes affecting your family and at other times affecting your business. This will seem particularly unfair where the information presented by the search engine against your name or the name of your business is untrue, deceptive or very old.

  • SEO and a right to be forgotten

    Many "webpage removal specialists" offer to remove bad pages from the search results by using search engine optimisation (SEO).

    It is a series of techniques that companies use to try and make their websites appear on the first pages of internet search results.

    It is largely a promotional tool which, if used knowledgeably, can bring almost any business tons of success. SEO is a good medicine to cure marketing problems. But when it comes to a bad and rapidly spreading case of infectious defamation, SEO might be less effective.

    Remember that SEO is a preventative tool. It does not "remove" or "delete" bad search results but only temporarily pushes them down the search results.

    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 our experience we have seen that such complaints usually go unanswered.

  • Fake online reviews about restaurants legal advice.

    This is business sabotage in the digital age. It is far more common than you might imagine and new enterprises are particularly vulnerable as they are at their weakest. The ‎culprits will normally be more established operators in their ‎sector/field who are seeking to ‘smother them in the cradle’ or ‎perhaps stifle their growth when they begin to feel the ‎effects of the competition on their own business.

    It might also be from established entities who are retaliating ‎to what the incorrectly perceive to be similar behaviour on ‎the part of others. ‎ Restaurants are especially vulnerable to fake reviews. A recent study from Harvard University entitled, "fake it 'till you make it" shows that independent restaurants are much more likely to post fake reviews about their competitors than any other sector. Equally, they are quite fond of making up good ones about themselves.

  • Defamation with SEO

    How SEO is used to spread defamation

    Everyone has a soft spot. Being called a certain bad name in public could cause you a lot of damage and harm your career.

    For example, a doctor might be described as "negligent", a solicitor as "incompetent", a builder as a "cowboy", or a teacher as "stupid". Such labels would be regarded by any of these people as a personal attack on their reputation and integrity.

    But perhaps the most harmful insult of all was suffered by a top civil servant who was a social worker for the Children’s Service at a district council in the north of the country.

  • Fake online reviews

    It is estimated by researchers that between 16 to 20 per cent of social media reviews are fake. We believe however that the real number is much higher.

    We believe that between 50 to 65 per cent of all online reviews are fake.

    A research by Harvard Business School entitled“Fake It Till You Make It: Reputation, Competition, and Yelp Review Fraud 24 September 2013” points to an emerging industry of fake review creation, which is primarily being driven by business owners who either leave positive reviews for themselves, negative reviews for their competitors or a combination of both.

    Internet defamation, is becoming more and more a survival issue for a growing number of individuals and organisations across the UK.

In most cases we can facilitate the removal of defamatory web pages through an affordable, yet persuasive Cease and Desist letter or by negotiations.

    Even if the offending website is located outside the jurisdiction of the English Courts, a well drafted letter might still be sufficient to have the defamatory content removed.

  • How to Remove False and Defamatory Reviews

    Questions about defamatory online reviews

    Many people genuinely believe and even insist that review websites are there to enhance consumer’s ability to make the right choice or to educate them in choosing; a reputable supplier, a builder, an estate agent or even a holiday provider - and they are dead wrong. The truth is that the vast majority of those who operate review websites have clever systems that are aimed at benefitting them financially by encouraging visitors to their website to write negative reviews. This is often achieved by attacking and consequently destroying the reputation of good, honest and well established businesses across the UK.

  • Defamation on review Websites – An Overview

    Review websites are either Industry Specific or Multi Area. They create an image of a service for the public good whilst in fact, they are commercial enterprises, they are not altruistic. Their commodity is YOUR reputation, and it's free of charge. Review websites often claim to have a right to publish without responsibility for content. This claim is false; in many cases operators of review websites are also the publishers and often the editors of the posts and are therefore liable to you for defamation.

This makes sense on the face of ‎it; what could you possibly learn that you don’t already ‎know? ‎But it is precisely this subconscious dismissal of the notion ‎that you could find something out that you don’t already ‎know that enables negative ‘information’ from going ‎undetected for so long and causing so much damage.

  • Online Defamation on YouTube

    Online reputation attacks can be significantly more powerful when videos are used to attack someone’s reputation. Google, which owns YouTube, appears to be pushing hard to include video posts in its search results. If there is an available video match to a specific search term, it is likely that this video will score highly in the search terms and make its way to the top page of the search results.

    Google aims to offer those who use its search engine a variety of information types, including regular web pages, blogs, social networks, videos, and images.
