Think those Yelp reviews you write online are completely anonymous?
Turns out that may not be the case. A Virginia court has ruled that Yelp must turn over the names of seven people who wrote negative comments about a carpet cleaning business.
Is this the beginning of the end of anonymous online reviews? HLN Legal Analyst Joey Jackson weighed in on "New Day" Friday.
See what he had to say above.
Yelp! has unfortunately dissolved in to a untrustworthy tool. It is riddled with false complaints and has been shown to be trolled by paid positive (and paid negative) reviewers. I don't know of anyone who relies on Yelp!. We all wanted to.. folks used it in the beginning with a critical and cynical eye knowing its chances of really succeeding were slim. Unfortunately, they were correct.
