Network Associates Sued For Not Allowing Reviews

from the free-speech-is-only-good-when-it-says-good-things-about-us dept

Free speech is a wonderful thing. Network Associates is being sued by NY State in a free speech case, because they have been trying to block anyone from writing an unfavorable review about their product. Apparently, the NA license prohibits the writing of a bad review. They even tried to force Network World to retract a bad review of the product since it violated their license. I’m amazed that anyone at Network Associates let such a clause get into their license agreement, let alone trying to enforce it. They had to have known it would cause trouble.
