How BeeHive protects your brand
Your abuser creates a page bearing your protected marks
The usage of your marks is detected during a perceptual hashing crawl, reported to us, or discovered by a hunter
Perceptual hashing is the use of a fingerprinting algorithm that produces a snippet, hash, or fingerprint of various forms of multimedia. A perceptual hash is a type of locality-sensitive hash, which is analogous if features of the multimedia are similar. This is not to be confused with cryptographic hashing, which relies on the avalanche effect of a small change in input value creating a drastic change in output value. Perceptual hash functions are widely used in finding cases of online copyright infringement as well as in digital forensics because of the ability to have a correlation between hashes so similar data can be found (for instance with a differing watermark).
While robots are looking for your marks via automated means, humans alongside them are visiting competitor and/or abuser websites, looking for protective justification.
Discovered abuse is compared to what is contractually and lawfully acceptable
Managing abuse concerns is an integral aspect of your brand's public image, and we prioritize giving you complete autonomy in this process. We believe that you, as the brand owner, have the best understanding of what constitutes abuse within your company and what does not. Therefore, we rely on your expertise to define these boundaries. However, in situations where there may be ambiguity, we immediately involve you in the decision-making process so that you can make the final call in an executive-style manner. By maintaining this collaborative approach, we ensure that your brand's reputation remains intact while allowing you to assert your control and authority over how abuse concerns are addressed.
A chance to do the right thing enters the chat...
In the unfortunate event of genuine accidents, individuals who engage in abusive behavior will be promptly notified of their rights and provided with guidance on compliance. It is widely recognized that resorting to litigation unilaterally would only exacerbate the situation by tenfold. However, if they display cooperation and demonstrate good will, there exists an opportunity where your legal representatives will not be perceived as harassing anyone.
...and just as quickly leaves...
...before we bring you up to speed on the entire interaction.
You will receive immediate notification about the takedown procedure conducted to protect your rights, along with any relevant information about the offender for potential legal action and support. Whether you choose to triumph in court or not is entirely up to you; we simply make it more challenging for them to engage in internet abuse.
