New Internet Trolls Law

New internet trolls laws New internet trolls laws

Chris Grayling’s announcement of 2 years jail term for internet trolls is inconsistent with the ministry of justice’ reluctance to prosecute internet trolls. In 2013 the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) published clear guidance to prosecutors under which communications that are grossly offensive, indecent, obscene or false but deficient in detail (as most tweets are) will be unlikely to be prosecuted. This means that offences involving twitter in particular are subject to a high threshold and that in many cases a prosecution is unlikely to be in the public interest. Whenever prosecution is not in the public interest, police is unlikely to waste time investigating the offence in the first place. On the ground, it is clear that unless the police is given direction and resources to enable it to start investigate anti-social behaviour on social media, the imposition of longer maximum jail terms to internet…

All You Need To Know About Fake Online Reviews

Online_Review_lawyerShould You Care About Online Reviews? Certainly you should, particularly if you have a business and if the reviews are fake and not in your favour. .

I have identified 7 different categories of fake online reviews.  Each of these categories is unique and should be approached and dealt with differently.

Fake online reviews by competitors, fake online reviews by disgruntled customers, fake online reviews by ex-employees, fake online reviews by former business partners, fake online reviews by suppliers, fake online reviews just for fun! and the last category – defamation on forums.

Read about each of these categories of fake online reviews on the website I dedicated for this purpose.

Remove Online Reviews

Why online reviewers need to watch their backs (not from the lawyers)

Have you ever left an online review? If you have, then this article
will interest you.

Recently I came across a few cases where people who left a review
following a purchase from Amazon Market Place, ended up being
bullied, harassed and trolled by what appeared to be an organised
network of Amazon vendors.

In one instant a man who left a review following his
dissatisfaction with the return policy of the vendor, received over
130 posts responding to his review, many of which were derogatory,
insulting and to be frank outrageous.

He was being ridiculed and embarrassed and even his home address
was placed on the discussion forum. The assault went on for a
number of days before Amazon agreed to remove some of the offending
comments.  However, these were replaced by more cruel and vicious
attacks on the buyer.

Is this a new trend? I hope not.

I will keep an eye on this issue. If you have had a similar
experience after you left an online review, I would love to hear
from you.
