LegalEye comes to the rescue of companies
The company LegalEye was founded in 2015 in Udine – and it is composed of a team of competent professionals: engineers, business executives, experts in Digital Forensics and IT, and consultants of the Ministry of Justice.
The company has developed a cloud software, patented in Italy and currently being registered in Europe, which allows companies, professionals, organizations, and individuals to “photograph with legal value” any content on the Internet, to protect themselves, both in and out of court, against acts of product counterfeiting, trademark and patent infringement, unfair competition, defamation, cyberbullying, stalking, reputation attacks and fake news occurred on the Internet.
A very useful and effective tool, as online information is volatile and modifiable and, if deleted, is usually not even recoverable by the Police. Moreover, both the normal screenshot and the prints of the pages have no legal value. LegalEye is one of the few companies currently on the market able to guarantee the genuineness and non-modifiability of the collected evidence. That is why its solution has been chosen as a reference tool by relevant Italian law firms and bodies and has been awarded six prizes by the European Commission, within the Horizon 2020 SME Phase2 project.
In particular, just to mention a few examples, with LegalEye® Pro it is possible to acquire and save everything visible on the Internet: websites, blogs, social network profiles, messages and chats (WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Telegram), emails, cloud services (Google Drive, iCloud, Dropbox), videos, photos, documents, downloadable software.
16 million Italians are affected by cybercrime
Cybercrime affects more than 16 million citizens in Italy (source InfoData – Sole24ore – 2018), with money stolen for more than $3.95 billion (€3.5 billion) and, between 2017 and 2019, the number of serious events increased by 48% (Clusit 2020 report).
In every cybercrime, there are traces or digital evidence on the Net that must be collected in forensic mode. LegalEye offers a tool within everyone’s reach and effective to acquire the evidence and immediately secure it from possible deletion or invalidation.
LegalEye aims to raise a minimum of $112,800 (€100,000) on CrowdFundMe
At the moment, the startup, after completing the testing phase in mid 2019, has allowed more than 200 acquisitions of evidence and has signed several agreements with institutional bodies and associations of relevant importance in the legal field: Cassa Forense, AIGA (Italian Association of Young Lawyers), ONIF (National Computer Science Forensic Observatory) and Future Touch, which will allow it to further increase the user base.
The equity crowdfunding campaign on CrowdFundMe, which will be completed by the end of July, with a minimum target of $112,800 (€100,000) (and subsequent $282,000 (€250,000), is aimed at strengthening marketing activities in Italy, to raise awareness of the technology for the acquisition of evidence, the expansion of the sales team, investment in research and development, training activities towards law firms – already underway – and sponsorship of seminars and conferences, in addition to co-financing university studies related to the evolution of law.
