About Stigma Search

Stigma Search's mission is to protect a brand's intellectual property online from all copyright and trademark violations.

Founded in 2014 by Kevin Hoda, Stigma Search provides a service called Online Brand Protection. Through this service a brand owner will no longer have to deal with intellectual property infringement online. Our software and enforcement measures will protect a brand from listings that violate a their copyrights and trademarks, it will remove search engine results that lead to sites hosting pirated content, and social media sites that host and promote fake goods.

We offer free Online Brand Protection to all non-profits regardless of size.
