A one of a kind service
Internet / Media Law
We have a specialist media law team that works hand in hand with our internet law team in order to stay ahead of the game in this fast paced and ever changing area of law.
The Media team at Pinder Reaux, led by John Spyrou, are highly experienced in all areas of Media law. We have represented actors, authors, film companies, television companies, news publications and musicians/rock stars. Our clients have round the clock access to our team.
Our extensive experience across privacy, defamation, and data protection law enables us to provide tactical and effective advice to clients and includes preventing publications from seeing the light of day, obtaining injunctions and removal and/or retractions and apologies where the defamatory material has already been published and obtaining payment for damages (compensation for injury to reputation and feelings).
We have a team dedicated to the prevention of harassment, both in the traditional sense and online harassment, cyber bullying, online trolling and cyber stalking. We have successfully obtained disclosure orders thereby unveiling otherwise anonymous perpetrators of harmful actions that occur on the internet and social media platforms utilising the Protection from Harassment Act, Malicious Communications Act, Misuse of Computer Acts and other relevant legislation.
Being the first UK law firm to seek and obtain a disclosure injunction against Facebook is just one example of the team’s ability to navigate this ever-evolving, fast paced, area of law with expert tactics and judgement.
We also advise clients on intellectual property rights, including internal and domestic trademarks and patent applications, passing off actions, copyright and the protection of performer’s rights.
There is no doubt that methods of communication have changed over the years and social media, such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, emails and instant communication apps such as Whats App, are frequently where unlawful and damaging actions occur.
Many people believe there is little to no recourse when they fall victim to this kind of online attack and harmful online/internet content remains available for anyone, including their friends, family and business contacts to see. This does not need to be the case. The team at Pinder Reaux will provide you with advice on the legal methods and most effective tactics to resolve the issues you are facing as swiftly as possible.
