Internet law — a.k.a., regulations and statutes that govern online business, marketing, promotions, and communications — is of one Gordon Law’s core competencies. Our team of attorneys, accountants, and professionals helps startups, e-commerce outfits, affiliate networks, and businesses with an online presence comply with state, federal, and international rules — in the most profitable manner.
Internet Law Topic: Online Brand Protection
We have extensive experience assisting people and companies with online brand protection. Under the right circumstances, we can put a stop to:
- Fake Blogs
- Fake Reviews
- Fake News Articles
- Fake Press Releases
- Online Identity Theft
- Improper Use of Brand Names
- The Sale of Counterfeit Products
- Protected Brand Names Used Within Domains
- Paid Search Campaigns Using Protected Terms
- Using Social Media to Portray Being a Part of Your Brand
Our Internet law team can monitor your brand online, stop illegitimate activities, and develop preventative strategies for digital intellectual property theft.
We’ve spent years immersed in the online business world, and our team members have become experts on domain policies, social networking policies, and Internet laws.
Internet Law Topic: Online Defamation / Review Fraud
Our team also advocates on behalf of businesses being unfairly maligned by online reviews. Yes, it is perfectly legal to publish negative reviews, but lying crosses the legal line. If someone has lied about your business online, and it’s causing material damage, we can help rectify the situation. Our Internet defamation law practice has helped countless affiliates, brands, and individuals reclaim their good names.
We also work with people who have been unfairly accused of online defamation.
Review fraud is another problem faced by many affiliate marketers. You’d be surprised at how many people buy fake reviews to smear competitors. Completely fake reviews, elicited to purposefully case reputational damage fly in the face of both marketing and defamation laws. If you’re a victim of this type of harassment, let us know, and we’ll solve the problem.
Internet Law Topic: Online Privacy
Over 65 countries have privacy and data security regulations — as do several states in our Union. Moreover, though the U.S. has yet to pass a universal online privacy law, there are several digital privacy laws that apply to certain populations and areas, like children, health, and finances.
Our Internet law team represents clients in breach situations and also develops cost-effective systems and procedures that businesses can use to ensure compliance with various online privacy regulations. We’ve assisted clients with:
- Email Marketing
- Security Breaches
- Privacy Procedures
- Legislative Advocacy
- Information Handling
- Commercial Transactions
- Cross-Border Data Transfers
- Privacy and Data Security Litigation
We’ll work with you to assess and manage any risks, establish data security programs and procedures, develop employee training, and, if necessary, handle responses to investigations/inquiries as well as litigation.
