This is a relatively new area of law and Lewis & Kappes is leading the way in advising clients on strategies to minimize or avoid reputation management problems online, as well as with Internet litigation involving:

  • Takedown disputes (getting content removed from Web sites, including sites such as YouTube)
  • Domain name disputes
  • Trademark and copyright disputes over material on the Web
  • Defamation, libel, slander, business disparagement and privacy/publicity claims

Reputation management is a significant area for many individuals and companies. If you find yourself on the wrong side of technologically adept and unhappy customer or adversary, your business or personal life could face serious problems. It is extremely difficult to get content removed from a Web site but interactive sites do have terms and conditions, rules and laws under which they operate (such as the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act)). There are mechanisms that can be used to provide force to a takedown notice.
