Found on Google reviews and Yelp!
We have a reader who posted one of these reviews telling us that their contact has a clause in it that there is a $10,000 penalty for leaving a bad review on Yelp. They said they received a demand letter to remove the review.
So that readers are aware and know their rights there is a “right to review law” in California. Part of this law makes it illegal to insert clauses that fine or penalize a consumer for writing reviews on Yelp Google etc. Known as the Yelp right to review law from a Utah case, this law gives consumers a way to fight back against unscrupulous companies like WICR. If you receive a demand letter because you wrote a Yelp review… File a complaint with the CSLB and send them a copy of your illegal contract… And while you’re at it you may want to file a complaint with the attorney general’s office as well.
