Fox News has consulted the firm’s Tim Bukher on a recent internet privacy story. From Fox News Magazine’s “How to Get Your Embarrassing Photos Off the Internet“:

Tim Bukher, a partner at the firm of Handal & Morofsky, adds that harmful photos may cause a different kind of headache far down the road. As he recalls, there have been instances where people have lost lawsuits because “the other side was able to dig up an old photo to prejudice the jury,” meaning that it can be impossible to foresee how an Internet photo can affect your future.

“Assuming that photo is yours and you did not license the website to display it, you can send a DMCA take-down notice,” says Bukher. This take-down notice, which is formal request for the material to be removed, is sanctioned under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) — a U.S. copyright law that helps to protect the ownership of digital information.

Tim Bukher leads the firm’s Intellectual Property and Internet & Data Practice Groups.
