About Us

Founded in 2000 by CEO John Giacobbi, Web Sheriff® has been successfully protecting the intellectual property of globally recognized and renowned rights holders within the music, film, TV, sports, fashion, interactive entertainment, and industrial manufacturing industries for nearly two decades.

Our company prides itself on being able to identify and recruit expert staff with years of industry experience in all aspects of online rights, intellectual property, anti-piracy, brand protection, automation, legal and business affairs, and entertainment law to ensure that Web Sheriff® is at the forefront to safeguard businesses, celebrities, families, and individuals.

A Word from Our Founder & CEO

“A rock ’n’ roll client once said to me that keeping the internet clear of piracy and other issues was like weeding the garden—you have to keep on top of it or the weeds grow back; but, if you keep at it, you’ll end up with a beautiful rose garden.

In many ways, this is a very accurate analogy. Many are the times when we’ve been called and asked to help transform a ‘netscape’ from weeds to roses; and, just as this is possible with real gardens, so too is it possible on the internet—cultivating and developing your web presence, for both your own benefit and, moreover, for the benefit of your fans and customers.

Whether you own a brand or product; a catalogue of highly successful albums, movies, TV shows, games, artwork, or e-books; or any other kind of intellectual property; Web Sheriff has you covered. We can help you build and protect your netscape, resulting in a far more cohesive presence online and a far more enjoyable browsing experience that is centered on your own sites, social media, online stores, and apps.

When Shakespeare wrote ‘All the world’s a stage’ in 1599, little did he know how prophetic his words would be—that, over 400 years later, the world would literally become a stage, courtesy of the internet and the platform that it provides to all of us.

As such, we’re living in an age when the internet affects all of our lives on a daily basis—mainly for the better, but sometimes also for the worse. These days, you don’t have to be a Hollywood A-Lister or a rock ‘n’ roll superstar to have internet issues or online problems. Everyone from small businesses to online shoppers, families, schools, and even children—who can be particularly vulnerable—are at risk from all manner of cyber issues, including e-fraud, impersonation, online libels, invasions of privacy, trolling, cyberstalking, and worse.

The unrivalled experience and know-how that Web Sheriff® has developed in over almost two decades of representing corporate and showbiz clients online, is now also available to you—all at prices that you don’t have to be a rock star to afford. Whatever your online issues, we’re here to help.”
