Yelp fights to combat an anti-Yelp documentary with Google ads and a domain name

Yelp is still hoping to avoid a Blackfish-style takedown after the recent release of a long-gestating documentary in which business owners take aim at the review platform for what they say is an extortion scheme.

I hadn't heard about this. Can't wait to watch it and I hope it puts some pressure on Yelp to change its ways!

This line worries me:

“I asked the filmmakers about the delay, and a rep for the project told me some of the people involved were concerned about litigation from Yelp.”

Even if 100% accurate and fact checked, if an individual chooses to criticize a large company, and if their eye falls on you (like Sauron’s Eye in Lord of The Rings) , they can make this persons life a litigation nightmare.
