Andrew Aguilar uses copyright law to help a victim of cyber-bullying

News Dec 15, 2011

Andrew Aguilar, an associate in the Litigation Group of the McMillan Vancouver office, took a stance against cyber-bullies after reading about the treatment a Kamloops woman on a U.S.-based website.

Jordin Steele had been trying unsuccessfully to remove offensive posts from a website after they appeared a few weeks ago.

Andrew read about her about her story and intervened on her behalf. He wrote letters informing the parties involved that the photos that were being used were owned by Ms. Steele and they were violating copyright law. Shortly after the letters were sent the posts were removed. Andrew did this work on a pro bono basis to help someone who was being bullied.

The story of how Andrew came to the aide of Jordin Steele is detailed in an article titled Vancouver lawyer gets nasty posts about Kamloops woman removed from U.S. site featured in the December 15, 2011 edition of the Kamloops Daily News & The Vancouver Sun.
