My First Cease & Desist Order!
Got an email today from a lawyer firm handing me a cease and desist order for a review I wrote on Max International, hahaha! I have until April 17th before legal action is going to be taken.
Here are some of the things they pointed out.
- Use of Max Internationals trademarks to divert traffic to promote your own products or services.
- False, misleading, deceptive statements that are designed to endorse another commercial endeavour.
- Lack of full disclosure of my commercial purposes.
It's my first one of these in all the time i have been online. I can see where I went wrong with the trademarks as I used their logo within my featured image.
On all my other posts I have a disclosure stating that I am not affiliated with the company I am reviewing, I also state what I do and how I do it (Affiliate Marketing with WA). For some reason I didn't have it on this post. Not sure why.
As for the misleading and deception, I guess that's the nature of writing negative review on products we don't use with the intention of directing them towards WA or any other opportunity for that fact.
Hopefully Kyle can see this post so he can give his POV.
I have made the changes to the post and will be communicating with them. I'll keep everyone posted.
