Amazon Sues Alleged Providers Of Fake Reviews

Amazon has filed suit against five web sites that offer fake reviews for money. Not only does the lawsuit accuse the defendants of taking money for fake reviews, but also trademark infringement and false advertising. I'm not going to link the actual site named in the lawsuit but you can see their ad below:

"To help eliminate the incentives to engage in reviews abuse, we will continue to pursue legal action against the root cause of reviews abuse آ— the sellers and manufacturers who create the demand for fraudulent services آ— as well as the ecosystem of individuals and organizations who supply fraudulent reviews in exchange for compensation," Amazon said in a statement.
