Karlsruhe (dpa) - Customer reviews on the online trading platform Amazon employ today the Federal Court in Karlsruhe. The question is whether the provider of a product is liable for the content of the reviews. The Association Social Competition has sued a dealer from Essen, who offers on Amazon so-called kinesiology tapes. There, users had written, the product lesser pain. Medically, this is not guaranteed. The association had warned the dealer about this claim several years ago.
