Defamation by Google: A Case Blog

Background to this Blog

I was defamed on a website that used its high Google page rank as a mechanism for extortion. Serious defamatory imputations about me were published at the top of a Google search for my name. Google refused multiple removal requests so in February 2011 I filed defamation proceedings in an Australian court. In 2015 I won (self represented) and in 2017 Google lost the appeal. Google continued to publish these imputations so I sued them again. Currently this matter is in court. This blog outlines the background to and result of taking on one of the richest corporations in the world in a fight for my rights to live without what amounts to corporate bullying.

Page1.me is owned and run by an Australian internet detective and activist against cyberbullying. There are many reputation management firms that cannot be trusted. I am not in business with Michael, the owner nor do I receive any commission. The link is published on my blog because he offers a viable solution and he is honest.
