NOTICE: This Site is NOT affiliated with Yelp.com
PURPOSE: This site is intended to balance the defamatory attacks levelled against businesses through fake, malicious reviews on Yelp.com, which Yelp often refuses to remove. Yelp also “filters” genuine positive reviews from view, resulting in the appearance of lower ratings.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on 2-Sep-2014 that even if Yelp did manipulate reviews to penalize businesses, the practice would not constitute extortion…
“the threat of economic harm that Yelp leveraged is, at most, hard bargaining.”
