“The Infringex Effect” at Work Again as London Paper Mulls Content Removal

October 27th, 2015|

Santa Monica, CA (October 27, 2015) – Infringex is proud to announce that a major London-based publisher will consider the removal of objectionable content after receiving our removal request.

The London based publisher is now in direct and active communication with the professional whom the outdated content pertains to and to whom the online content is presumable causing harm.

“This is very important and we really applaud the site administrators for being open and willing to consider content removal. Whether or not a site administrator can legally hide behind the law, such is often the case here in the United States, it doesn’t mean that it’s the right thing to do morally or ethically. Especially and primarily, if the objectionable content is not of great public concern. Compassion needs to be part of the equation and the United States is behind the trend,” said Chief Officer Marvin Marshall.

Why Site Administrators Are Taking Advantage of YOU! Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act

October 25th, 2015|

Santa Monica, CA (October 25, 2015) – Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act basically means that site administrators, under most circumstances do not have the legal obligation to remove objectionable content about you.

How did this come about? and why is it skewed against every day people?
Certainly there is an almost infinite number of Internet users who feel completely baffled that they are virtually powerless to control the content as it pertains to them. This seems completely unfair and it is!

Section 230 is the key law in regard to content for websites, but the good news is this Section 230 is under severe attack. Some argue that courts have been straining to get around the broad and unfair protection for site owners and lobbying is underway in Washington to get the law changed.

Some history in regard to the Communications Decency Act. The drafters of Section 230 never truly intended Section 230 to give websites broad immunity from being forced to remove content. The Section was intended to deal with issues regarding explicit images. Many believe this makes the law ripe for change and presently, there is no group in Congress that claims ownership of the provision and feels a need to “protect it.” Hopefully, Washington will take on this issue soon, perhaps after the election and provide justice for the people!

The Forbes Blog by Professor Goldman was very helpful for the company in many ways,” said Marvin Marshall, Chief Officer.

“The Infringex Effect”, The Indirect Removal or Omission of Unwanted Internet Content Facilitated by Infringex

May 20th, 2015|

Santa Monica, CA (May 20, 2015) – “Remove something from the Internet.” This phrase alone elicits controversy, fear and doubt. Most of the drama in regard to removing something from the Internet, has to do with complicated free speech issues and challenges to standing order and law.

However, underneath all the legal and intellectual turmoil surrounding the issue, are real people who are in emotional distress. This distress is a result of something appearing online about them, or a loved one, which they believe to be invasive, damaging or even dangerous. The presence of unwanted online information can prevent good people from financial prosperity, getting jobs, having relationships or feeling safe and secure.

The success that Infringex has had to date, is not due to any legal arm-twisting, as it’s fairly obvious that our documents are requests for cooperation and its stated all over our website and at the top of our documents, that we are not a law firm. Our users enjoy our services because we aid them by correctly pairing and delivering the request for removal of the objectionable content to the site administrator. Our users also can choose from our documents, the ones that they feel best encompass the potential legal issues surrounding the content in question. These potential issues are typically defamation and privacy concerns. Our documents get noticed and act as a summary presentation for the site administrator to act on. The documents provide the site administrator convenience by including the reason for your request, your name, signature and a link to the content in question.

“The Infringex Effect” occurs when our communications with site administrators results in the indirect removal or omission of the content in question.

An example. A recent site user wanted the adoption records of her child removed from the Indiana state database. Presumably, she believed this to be a privacy issue for her teenage daughter. Although we did not achieve immediate removal regarding this privacy concern as a result of delivering the document on behalf of our client, the State of Indiana provided Infringex pertinent State Agency information for our user to act on.

In another instance, Infringex recently delivered one of our user-selected notices to an online company that indexes court cases. The fact that this particular court case appeared online, was a privacy concern to one of our users, who wished that it would be removed. As a result of our communication with this site administrator, our user was provided with the instructions necessary to facilitate its omission. “The Infringex Effect” was complete when the court documents in question, were thereby blocked from search engines.

Infringex is a content management company concerned about online privacy issues. Our goal is to help consumers everywhere bring objectionable content to the attention of site owners for removal. We allow you to easily assert your rights using our document and delivery services.

Infringex Forbes Blog by Renowned Professor Eric Goldman Santa Clara University School of Law

May 17th, 2015|

[Update 5/22/2015 – In accordance with the Forbes blog, Infringex edited its site and documents to better serve users and comply with legal standards.]

Santa Monica, CA (May 17, 2015) – On May 14, 2015 Infringex was notified by a reporter that a blog had been written regarding the company by Law Professor Eric Goldman, a contributor at Forbes.com. The blog was written after Professor Goldman received one of our documents from one of our infringex.com users, a woman in distress, in regard to content appearing on the Internet.

This particular infringex.com site user was seeking to have Professor Goldman remove objectionable content via a “removal request” which she chose from our list of documents from our services page, which deal with common online privacy issues.

infringex.com (a registered trademark) provides a document and delivery service where we deliver consumer chosen documents to site administrators on behalf of our users. Infringex is not a law firm and we do not aid our site users in calculating their legal standing, judge or apply the law to their set of circumstances.

To date, our services have helped facilitate the removal of content from the Internet on behalf of our users from some of the largest site owners in the world. (also see, “The Infringex Effect“)

The site user in question for whom we delivered the document to Mr. Goldman is a very nice middle-aged woman, who like many people in America are concerned with their online privacy.

Instead of showing an “act of compassion” by removing something online, that might not have been of great public concern, offering a redaction, simply declining her request or wanting to learn more about the grievance by contacting her, her issue was cruelly publicized by Professor Eric Goldman in order to make an interesting read for his Forbes blog.

The Forbes blog falsely asserts that Infringex is just one of many companies who are just “peddling a dream”. Any of our site users for whom we have successfully facilitated the removal of unwanted content on the Internet (as shown above), would also agree that the services offered by Infringex were very effective for them and not just “a dream”.

Recent Q and A With Techdirt.com Answered by Chief Officer, Marvin Marshall

May 16th, 2015|

(These Questions were asked by Tim Cushing, of techdirt.com and answered on 5/15/2015 by Chief Officer, Marvin Marshall)

1. Without legal backing for your removal requests you send out, do you actually have much success in getting content removed?

Many site administrators do comply with the removal requests. I think we mentioned some of those specifically in our News, Blog, Facebook and Twitter pages. We make mention of where we have had successes on our site.

2. What happens if the removal request is ignored? Do customers receive a refund or are they left to pursue other legal options?

If the removal request does not achieve compliance and Infringex is unable to facilitate the removal of the objectionable web content, there is no refund for the user and that is disclosed in our Terms of Use. Upon sending the document to the site owner, we have performed on their behalf and just as in other professions, success can not always be achieved. We are not a law firm and if our services are not successful we encourage our users to seek the advice of a licensed attorney in their area. (see our Disclaimer)

3. For that matter, what is your “hit rate?” How often do these removal requests succeed in comparison to how many are sent?

No, we have not calculated an exact “hit rate” percentage to date. If I had to guess, I would say it’s somewhere around 40%. I think we tend to focus on our successes and achievements as proof positive that our removal requests have a chance to work in almost any situation. Most of the time, it truly depends how “reasonable” the site owner wants to be when the request is coming from someone who truly feels aggrieved.

We don’t publish a “success rate” mainly due to the fact that a lot of time content is removed and we never get notified. Only some of the time do site administrators take the time to write us and notify us that something has been removed.  We have posted some of those site administrator compliance emails here on our site. In regard to an exact success rate, we would have to spend countless hours having our technicians backtracking, doing investigative work to try to come up with some calculations. 40% is my best estimate.

4. In the “News” section of your website, it’s noted that 2015 revenue has grown, as compared to 2014, along with the user base? Do you have any data to share that would back up this claim?

I don’t have any exact figures to make public, but if our company was audited I can guarantee you, that this years revenue has already eclipsed last years. We write news based on facts not fiction!

5. Also from the news: “record revenue” is reported for 2014, but it would also appear that 2014 is the year the business began operation. If I’m mistaken about that, could you provide some information about these “record revenues” as compared to previous years?

Again, I don’t have those exact figures and we are not a public company, but when we mention “record revenue” it means that revenue is at a level higher, than where it was previously, in the timeframe mentioned. We did have limited operations in 2013 when Infringex was conceptualized and was a sole proprietorship.

6. There are a lot of claims made about powers being granted by the USPTO via your company’s trademark registration. Could you explain what powers you feel are vested in a trademark registration, other than to prevent similar businesses from using your registered mark?

The news release dated December 8, 2014 regarding USPTO granting trademark protection; that was an important company milestone and worthy of the mention. That’s all. Do I believe it’s a very good mark? Yes I do.

7. Infringex claims to have meet with advisors from the “Silicone Valley.” Any further information you can provide on who was met with or what firms and when these meetings took place?

If I’m not mistaken I believe the news that you are referring to reads that “infringex engages advisers.” This is a true statement as our company looks for both investment and a new management team to manage and cultivate growth. We have reached out to several firms, here in the Los Angeles area as well and when there is significant news we will post it here. There are countless reasons why someone would want to use our services and continued growth is likely. I’m hoping that the company completes its stated strategic process by the end of the year.

In addition to this Q and A, Infringex has offered to provide Techdirt.com with proof of its recent successes touted on our site and or our social media pages, in the form of compliance emails from site owners, other documentation, or the like. This documentation will prove what many of our users already know, that our services can indeed help facilitate the removal of unwanted content on the Internet.
