In February, we told you about the lawsuit filed against WOT in Florida. Ten internet companies accused WOT of defamation, violating rights, conspiracy and manipulating algorithms, among other claims, and demanded WOT to remove ratings and comments related to them. Now, almost a year later, we finally have good news: The court of justice granted the motion to dismiss with prejudice!
Obviously, we all are very relieved of the judge’s decision, although we’re not surprised. “The court’s decision is a very important precedent for WOT, although we always knew that the case was baseless. The decision shows clearly that courts in the United States favor freedom of speech.” says CEO Vesa Perälä.
Read the whole story in our press release that also explains the colorful changes of the case.
