Amazon Sues Fake Review Site

Joe Mullin (via Slashdot):

The giant of online retail has filed a lawsuit (PDF) in King County Superior Court against Jay Gentile, a California man who Amazon says created websites offering to sell verified Amazon reviews for between $19 and $22 per review. The websites sell varying packages of reviews, allowing users to buy as few as three reviews and as many as 100.

The offerings include “drip-feed delivery” and a “100 percent stick guarantee” for reviews, promising to replace any that Amazon deleted or filtered out.
