MARGARET E. COOPER, LLC, a law firm
We provide affordable small-scale internet take-down strategies for businesses of all sizes and individuals. Our take-down notices remove sites from search engines and dramatically improve your online presence and brand. Our take-down services are not automated by software but are carefully customized and incorporated within a comprehensive strategy to meet your specific goals and budget.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The DMCA dictates the take-down of copyright-infringed (and non-copyrighted) content from a website publishing content in violation of copyright protection or content being used without permission or not in accordance to the content owner.
Although the DMCA is part of US Copyright law, a DMCA Takedown does not require the content to be copyrighted in order to process the takedown and for the content to be taken down by the website owner or online service provider.
If you are the victim of an unlawful DMCA Notice, you can file a counter-notice, which requires the person/business who filed against you to file a court case within a certain amount of time or the ISP must restore the allegedly infringing content. Filing a false DMCA Notice can also subject the filer to damages and possible criminal prosecution.
Defamation is generally defined as a false, published statement that is injurious to the plaintiff's reputation. An online posting, even on an obscure website, will likely be seen by a few people, thus satisfying the publication requirement. Social media has become a liability landmine. Whether you or someone you love has been a victim of defamation or has been accused of defaming someone, Margaret E. Cooper, LLC can help.
A false or negative only review can be devastating to a business. Such defamatory and untruthful content must be removed as quickly as possible. We defend brand integrity, including defending victims of internet defamation, trade libel, and unfair business practices. We fight on your behalf to get the defamatory content removed, and seek potential damages.
