Why should legal professionals use a professional web capture tool?
Electronic evidence is proliferating – the need to capture online evidence for use in cases is growing exponentially. Web capture specifically is becoming a must for practice areas such as:
- Intellectual Property Law and Brand Protection
- Family Law
- Insurance Defense and Personal Injury
- Class Action and False Advertising
Web capture is now a necessary part of preliminary research, early case assessment, and discovery. Legal professionals require a tool that allows them to easily and quickly capture web content, and which presents the results in a format that is both readable and professional.
Electronic evidence is here today, gone tomorrow. Webpages may be changed or removed; social media pages may be made “private.” All of this means that lawyers need a tool that:
- helps them capture web content quickly, before they are gone
- proves that the page was on the web at the URL and time specified for the capture
- prints out a readable and exact copy of the webpage for use in cases and courts
“Thanks to Page Vault, we are not only able to capture websites consistently with a defensible audit trail but we are able to do it in a fraction of the time that it took us in the past .”Chris Bojar
Page Vault solves common web content capture problems
Problem: print-outs don’t look like original page and are missing content
- Many capture applications and browser print functions fail to reproduce all elements of the page
- Some websites employ special CSS code to prevent browsers from printing the page as it appears
Page Vault captures whole pages exactly as it appeared online. See Page Vault’s PDF >
Problem: scrolling social media pages are a nightmare to manually capture
- Capturing all elements on the page requires you to use “print-screen” and paste the result into another document
- Continuous scrolling pages require this to be repeated hundreds of times – a single profile can take an hour or more to capture
- Sections of pages are easily missed by mistake when captures are done by hand
Page Vault scrolls through long pages in seconds. See Page Vault Expander in action >
Problem: capturing entire websites – hundreds or thousands of pages – can take days and is often cost-prohibitive
- Captures of whole sites for case matters, compliance, or discovery can take days of staff time
- Even most webpage capture tools require each page to be captured individually
- Many unlinked pages on a site are easily missed
Page Vault’s technology quickly allows you to capture large numbers of pages, whole websites or very long social media profiles.
