|North Texas badlands, 2018/6|
Here’s a case from Lehto’s Law where someone was sued for a “bad review”. The plaintiff had been a company that promised to increase web traffic, and the company was overseas. The “bad review” might not have been untruthful.
The defendant now has a default judgment (in Texas) but it sounds like he might never have been served properly. Usually it would take certified mail or a process server, especially from overseas.
The other thing is, yes, it his hard for many online businesses to make money legitimately. This may get harder now with ideas like substack proliferating.
