Re: False Advertising == Free Speech?

But I've often seen companies publishing blatant falsehoods, get called out by competitors, yet people believe the lies anyways. A problem then arises down the road when these consumers find out they were fed bullcrap and find themselves facing penalties & fines if they wish to terminate a product that could never perform as advertised.

Pure caveat emptor systems historically have left consumers being royally boned.

Which is why companies require arbitration instead of lawsuits now in their TOS. If they do lie out the nose and snag a few million customers they do not have to fear a massive class action.
