A number of attorneys who specialize in online defamation/libel cases have reported to me that Google has recently suspended its longstanding, informal policy of removing URLs from US search results that are specified in duly executed court orders. This poses a major paradigm shift for many victims of online reputation attacks. Beginning around August or September of this year, a number of attorneys from across the US began receiving blanket denials after submitting requests to remove defamatory content from Google’s search results. Since at least 2009, Google has had an informal policy of accepting many removal requests when accompanied by a properly executed court order specifying defamatory/libelous content at specific URLs. I’ve personally seen a number of cases where hundreds and even thousands of URLs have been submitted with court orders, and Google has removed those URLs from search results. But they’ve now stopped. Not for every single request, but for a … [Read more...] about Has Google suspended defamation removals?
If your reputation hasn’t been damaged in some way online, then you may never have thought about whether search engines could be responsible.

But there’s a lot more going on than meets the eye. Google, Bing and other search engines could bear part of the responsibility if those search results are harming you. First, if someone intentionally creates and publishes material specifically intended to lie about or misrepresent you, and thus damages your reputation — whether it be your business or you personally — then it’s obvious that this person is directly responsible. Under generally accepted business laws in the United States and Europe, that person may be considered liable for the damage they’ve done, and they might be compelled to assist you in … [Read more...] about Are Search Engines Responsible For Reputation?

In part one of my interview with Hampus Jakobbson, TAT Co-Founder and now Strategic Alliances EMEA at Research in Motion, we talked about user experiences designed for Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants. As we continued to chat, we went into some fascinating territory that is literally right out of science fiction. TAT (short for The Astonishing Tribe) designed user experiences for new interactive screen technologies. One of the many fascinating topics we discussed was this idea of personal and public screens and how they may interact together. Jakobbson talked about how our notion of “personal” technology has changed in the last decade: Jakobbson: I think there’s a big, big trend moving in one direction, which is the personal screen, the one I am holding in my hand. I think you’re seeing interesting consumer patterns there, for example, with mobile phones actually pushing away what other devices used to be and the way we use them. We used to call our … [Read more...] about Interview With Hampus Jakobbson Part II: Plugging Into The Grid
