“Notice of Concerns” – A Powerful Legal Document That Leaves Search Engines Without Excuse.

Unlike the USA, Common Law countries such as Australia, have strong anti-defamation laws to protect their citizens against Internet Defamation.When you discover defamatory search results, consider filing a Notice of Concerns upon all major search engines, demanding removal of the search results. If the Search Engine Giants ignore you, they may be liable for financial damages to you. You have the following options:

  1. If you can afford it, ask your lawyer to research and rrepare a NOC for service against Search Engines.
  2. Try doing it yourself
  3. Engage a paralegal or other experienced person to help you prepare the document. This is very economical, but you should always ask your lawyer to review before submission. The Defamation 911 team can help you with this.
