Apple’s filing also takes thinly-veiled jabs at the entire software patent licensing situation: “Apple periodically enters into licenses for patents that allegedly cover Apple technology.”
Once again, Yelp is getting sued for blackmailing small businesses. The owner of one of my local cafes has been hit with this.
Yelp gave a Jane Doe a brand new MacBook and sent her into the cafe (strangely, she carried the MacBook around in its retail box). She bought a coffee and a pastry, then wrote a great review but only gave it three stars. Turns out she does this a lot: in the last month, Jane’s written 198 reviews.
Yelp called a couple days later and offered to filter out those kinds of reviews for $390. Despicable.
