Thanks to the Internet ordinary people seem to have a far louder and more dangerous voice than ever before. One review, one comment, one blog can harm the reputation of a person, business or entity.

New Criminal Laws will assist online reputation management and fight bullying. Didier Grossemy has been cyber bullied for the past 7 years.
