Businesses that slip non-disparagement clauses into their consumer contracts are silencing critical public feedback and undermining a key aspect of the digital economy, argued Rob Atkinson in testimony today before the Senate Commerce Committee. Given the negative impact of these so-called “gag” clauses for both customers and businesses, Atkinson urged Congress to pass the bipartisan Consumer Review Freedom Act of 2015, which would prohibit them.
