Yelp Wanted

2008_07_yelpwantedsmall.jpgLocal Yelper—and alleged really big liar—Christopher Norberg is being sued over one of his reviews. If it goes through, experts are predicting that the lawsuit could have repercussions throughout Yelpland because Yelpers would—shock!—have to be accountable for their actions: "'If Christopher loses then anyone on Yelp who writes a negative review better be careful,' said Michael Blacksburg, an attorney representing Norberg. 'This strikes at the heart of Yelp's business model and other Web sites that provide a bulletin board for people to state what they think of businesses in their community.'" [CNET]
