This latest prosecution of Sean Duffy at Reading Magistrates’ Court may signal the beginning of a new line of prosecution by the police of internet related offences, which will be great news to tens of thousands of UK victims of internet defamation and abuse, and in particular to those vulnerable victims who are not in a financial position to be able to afford expensive civil proceedings.
In a first case of its kind, Magistrates’ have jailed a man who posted abusive images to online memorials dedicated to dead children. The man was jailed for 18 weeks and was banned from participating in social networking for a period of five years.
At Court, Sean Duffy, 25 from Reading, admitted to posting images on Facebook…

The internet works in a strange way. Each time your reply to an online comment, you are fuelling its popularity. This is because you are introducing new material on the same topic.
The search engines, and in particular Google give priority to ‘live’ issues which means that each time a comment is being added to a thread, it helps the thread to climb up the search engines’ ladder, which ironically is exactly the opposite of the result that you would want to achieve.

Some internet posts are very old, perhaps they were first published on the internet 10-15 years ago. So why should you be bothered with the presence of historic postings on the internet, postings which you are told no one is likely to see anyway?
The answer is simple. Internet content is being recycled all the time.
People who run websites, the sole purpose of which is to display advertising, are very often too lazy to create their own original new content. So instead, they find old content on the internet and then use it to drive traffic to their own websites.
As their website becomes content rich, it attracts more traffic, which means that the historic postings about you or your business now start to be viewed by more and more web users and this in turn, increases the prominence of the negative historic posts.
SO WHAT if you could have your own full report which reveals all current and historic internet postings about you or about your company, going back up to 35 years and showing you everything which has ever been written in the past and everything that is currently published on the internet?
I know you would probably want one of these reports yourself because this information is like GOLD DUST and people in business can easily identify GOLD when they see it.
So we have developed the Under the Radar™ Reputation Report, to give you detailed research information on internet posts which are up to 35 years old! The Report is even divided into different geographic areas to allow you to see what results people find about you from different locations in the country!
Here is where you can discover more and order your own, personal Under the Radar™ Reputation Report.
There is a big difference between traditional defamation law solicitors and the modern online defamation lawyers. Defamation law and online defamation law are arguably two very distinct areas of law.
This is why, with all the best intentions, old fashioned defamation advice in relation to online defamation can sometimes backfire, in the sense that even if the case is won at court, the defamation still remains online and can even increase in volume.
Internet law and online defamation law are not subjects which are taught at law schools. They can only be mastered by constant usage and by plenty of practical experience.

It is very difficult to describe the moment where you first realise that your business reputation is being tarnished all over the internet. This unforgettable moment normally follows by many sleepless nights, tiredness, frustration and of course money problems.
You see, some of your employees are likely to possess impressive amounts of knowledge about you, your business, your practices, your procedures, your errors, mistakes and regrets, as well as about your true feelings about things that matter to your customers.
You get hit left, right and centre and with very little opportunity to defend yourself.
In the meantime, the online defamation attacks are starting to increase. Links are being shared between people and more defamatory material is now being…. Read more on Online Defamation
How To Destroy A Reputation In 5 Minutes. Don’t Repeat At Home!!!
Everyone has got their own soft spot. Depending on your profession, being called by a particular name in public, could cause you a lot of damage and harm your career. For a doctor, being commonly described as ‘negligent’, for a solicitor, being described as ‘incompetent’, for a builder, being described as ‘a cowboy’ or for a teacher, being described as ‘stupid’, would be regarded by any of these people as a personal attack on their reputation and integrity.
But not all insults are as harmful as the insult suffered by a top civil servant who worked as a social worker for the Children’s Service at a District Council in the North of the country. Having specialised for many years in children with learning difficulties….Read more on Internet Defamation By Tagging
The Director, who was well vested in the technical side of the internet, decided to take revenge by posting negative comments and reviews about his former employer on various websites and forums. The comments explicitly suggested that the company was fraud and that it was simply taking its customers’ money and never intended to deliver any work. Shortly after this Director left the company, its UK operation had almost died out. The telephone stopped ringing and current customers started to leave the company with various excuses.
