U.S. House takes steps to protect consumers’ rights to post negative reviews

Use and abuse of contracts. “Non-disparagement” clauses provide that, upon a negative review of a consumer, the provider company has a cause of action against the consumer for breach of contract.

Such practice is not allowed anymore by the Consumer Review Fairness Act of 2016. Yet employement and bespoke-consumer contracts are excluded. Likewise, confidentilaity duty, defamation/libel and similar are exempt.
