Amazon Seller Legal Issue: Fake Reviews

Ask any Amazon seller: Ratings are paramount! And cultivating quality ratings is an essential arrow in the FBA marketing quiver.

Moreover, on Amazon, a seller's ASR, or Amazon Sales Rank, is largely dependent on their review status.

In other words: Product reviews affect every Amazon seller's bottom line.

The Federal Trade Commission has a zero-tolerance stance on fake and paid reviews. Part of the commission's job is to scrub the marketplace of bad actors, and it sees phony reviews as textbook online marketing fraud.

Fake review victims have several regulations at their disposal to stop competitors, including: trade libel and defamation statutes, Section 5 of the FTC Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the Lanham Act, state intellectual property laws, and tortious interference laws.
