1888 Press Release - Mark Ishman reaches out to remind individuals and businesses of the potential issues associated with online defamation and offers insight on combating this problem.
Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC - Mark Ishman, an experienced internet lawyer, explains the growing issue with online defamation and reminds individuals and business owners of what to look out for and that there is help available.
Online defamation is a significant issue affecting businesses and individuals all throughout the state, country and world, and it comes in many different forms including blogs, customer reviews, peer reviews, websites, complaint boards, and more. New techniques are employed every day that are aimed at damaging your reputation. Such published untrue misrepresentations about you and your company often originate from competitors, disgruntled customers and employees, explains Mark Ishman. If you rely on the Internet for lead generation for your business, then defamatory statements can cause great damage to you. If you do become a target, then you need counsel who is experienced in helping others through these matters.
According to Mark Ishman, the three most damaging ways in which you can be victimized from untrue misrepresentations about you and your business are: online customer reviews of your business; online complaint blogs and other like forums; and a Google bomb launched against your reputation. Mark Ishman, an experienced cyber-law lawyer, further explains the three methods typically employed by those looking to damage the online reputation of a business or individual and what can be done to combat this growing problem.
Reviews: We all know how valuable reviews are to consumers. Reviews are relied upon by consumers to decide where to eat, travel to and purchase all kinds of goods and services, including those goods and services sold by you and your company. If you have a bad review about your business, consumers will likely consider it to determine whether to do business with you.
Complaint Boards: When consumers are upset with goods or services they purchased or received, some will publish their disappointment on various online complaint boards. These consumers have a First Amendment right to speak about their experience with your business, but they often exceed this right by intentionally interfering with your business and prospects by defaming you and your business with far reaching untruthful, misleading and deceptive statements.
Google Bomb: This is the contra-positive of search engine optimization (SEO) where SEO techniques are utilized to cause damage to you and your company. Here is how they do this: They publish certain untruthful, misrepresentations and deceptive content discussing you or your business and then employ SEO techniques so that these comments appear as top search results for you and your business.
The results of online defamation can be devastating and effectively dealing with someone determined to destroy your online reputation will require a lawyer with experience in internet law.
