Websites, videos, and social media content can provide critical insights into a case, often acting as pivotal or even decisive elements. This digital evidence can unravel narratives, corroborate stories, and sometimes, serve as the "smoking gun" that sways legal outcomes.

However, the collection and handling of digital evidence are fraught with legal and technical challenges. Legal teams must navigate a complex landscape to ensure that such evidence is not only relevant but also admissible in court. A common pitfall involves the improper collection of online content, such as taking screenshots without considering the necessary metadata or failing to capture the digital footprint that authenticates the evidence. These oversights can lead to significant legal setbacks, as seen in recent cases where courts have excluded screenshots in trademark and copyright infringement cases due to questions around authenticity and integrity.
