Online Reputation – Injunction Against Google: How To Remove A Website « Internet Law Expert
How Can I Remove Defamatory Websites?
In the past few weeks we removed over 40 defamatory websites, which up until then, devastated our clients’ reputation.
We removed a vast number of defamatory videos from YouTube and we managed to remove a popular, yet defamatory article against a successful businessman from a national news website.
We sought and won injunctions against YouTube, Google Inc, Firefox and other internet giants around the world and successfully enforced them all in the UK, the USA, Canada and other countries.
We gave one decent, hard-working online retailer his business back following savage online reputation attacks against him and his company by competitors.
We advised a client who owns an international franchise company on how to deal with online attacks by a former employee. These constant attacks were estimated to have cost the company in excess of £300,000!
We have also helped the owners of a national services company to form their first ever online reputation strategy following a devastating online reputation attack against them by both a competitor and a former employee, which cost them their biggest contact.

Internet Law Expert Tip of the Day
There is an old saying that “the first step to getting out of a hole is to stop digging”.
If you discover that your online reputation has been tarnished on a rough website and that bad results are appearing against your name upon every Google search, do yourself a favour and overcome the natural tenancy of constantly clicking on the link to the bad result. A defamatory remark on the internet is similar to a toothache – we feel almost a compulsive need to touch and feel the pain – in case it has already gone without us noticing it.
Sadly, with defamatory remarks on the internet, the more you click the more powerful they become. Google gives priority to popularity. So every click makes the bad comment more dominant and in Google’s view also more important, which means that the defamatory remark will constantly be climbing up the search engine ladder with more people seeing it.
When people see a link to a defamatory page against them, they tend to tell friends and family about it with the result that the link to the bad comment becomes very popular. The more people click on the link to see what is being said about their friend/family, the more likely it is that the link will remain at the top of the search engine.
So remember that the first step to getting out of a hole is to stop digging.
An internet law expert will use special tools to examine the link and the defamatory page regularly without actually adding to its popularity. So if you are unfortunate enough to have enemies who have taken upon themselves to defame your character online – make sure you don’t tell the world about it and take legal advice from an internet law expert as soon as possible.

Legal Tip of The Day – Internet Defamation
“If you have found yourself being the subject of an online reputation attack, with lies being spread about you over the internet, you will find that the most effective way of dealing with such menace is to simply ask that the website owner or the Internet Service Provider remove the libelous statements. Normally website owners and internet service providers are not willing to tolerate online abuse or risk getting involved in litigation which has probably got nothing to do with them anyway. You can normally obtain very useful information from the website owner because websites routinely require visitors and bloggers to register before posting content and sites usually can pinpoint the IP address where the defamatory posting originated. “
