Reputation Expert Warns Parents Of Liability Of Online Teenagers Following Million Dollar Court Ruling
Reputation Expert JW Maxx Solutions is warning parents to keep tabs on their teenager's internet activity because it could land them in trouble with the law, as seen by a recent million-dollar court ruling against a Massachusetts teen.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Earlier this week, a Massachusetts family has learned the hard way that their teenage son is not immune to the law simply because he did something on the internet, rather than in person. The high school student was arrested last week after publishing a rap video of himself rapping about what police are calling "disturbing verbiage" and reportedly mentioned the White House and the Boston Marathon bombing. The teen is facing a potential 20-year sentence with bail set at $1 million.
Reputation expert JW Maxx Solutions is warning parents that freedom of speech only protects so much, and the age-old example of shouting "fire" in a public location certainly still applies to today's internet-savvy youth. The days of anonymous internet posting are over; government agencies are looking to the internet with more focus as terrorist organizations have found the internet is an ample recruiting tool for their groups' agendas. Even something as seemingly innocent as a teen rapping, can land the teen in hot water.
As an onlinereputation expert, JW Maxx Solutions also suggests parents look at the Massachusetts incident from another angle. Suppose the vile rap video was targeted at another student, or teacher? The victim, or the victim's parents, has every right to go after the aggressor for harassment. Of course, a lawsuit wouldn't target the teen, but the parents. Parents should always be aware of their teen's online activity, because if not controlled, it might cost them thousands.
The reputation expert JW Maxx Solutions helps their clients recover from such occurrences. Many internet users believe that simply because they can post without using their real name, that they are immune to the law, and thus harass competitors or individuals. If left unchecked, these false accusations and libelous attacks can damage the target's online reputation with uninformed potential customers or general users. JW Maxx Solutions helps people or business owners recover from such attacks, and present the desired image for search engines to display.
JW Maxx Solution's reputation management agents are fully aware of the latest internet trends and utilize search engine algorithms to directly benefit their clients. A Google search results page full of false negativity can be turned around by enlisting the aid of a reputation expert, like JW Maxx Solutions.
