Clutch Co reviews are against US / EU laws:

Unfair Commercial Practices Directive – EU LAW

The Unfair Commercial Practices Directive 2005/29/EC[1] regulates unfair business practices in EU law, as part of European consumer law. It requires corresponding laws to be passed that incorporate it into each member state’s legal system.

The Directive is concerned mainly with the “substantive” law (meaning in this context the standards of behaviour required of traders). To some extent it leaves to member states the choice of appropriate domestic enforcement procedures and penalties for non-compliance (Articles 11 to 13 of the Directive).

Clutch is using unfair commercial practices and all the companies who are advertising on the Clutch. They must be sued by consumer organizations and independent journalists and also consumers and businesses for deception, fraud and fake reviews.

California Unfair Competition Law

In addition to federal laws, each state has its own unfair competition law to prohibit false and misleading advertising.[1] In California, one such statute is the Unfair Competition Law [hereinafter “UCL”], Business and Professions Code §§ 17200 et seq. The UCL “borrows heavily from section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act” but has developed its own body of case law.

Clutch is using unfair commercial practices and all the companies who are advertising on the Clutch. They must be sued by consumer organizations and independent journalists and also consumers and businesses for deception, fraud and fake reviews.

Puffery in Law

In everyday language, puffery refers to exaggerated or false praise. In law, puffery is a promotional statement or claim that expresses subjective rather than objective views, which no “reasonable person” would take literally. Puffery serves to “puff up” an exaggerated image of what is being described and is especially featured in testimonials.

Puff piece is an idiom for a journalistic form of puffery: an article or story of exaggerating praise that often ignores or downplays opposing viewpoints or evidence to the contrary.

The picture which is attached here in this article is posted on wikipedia. It is described for the details of the image that it is perfect example of puffery reviews.

1881 Italian ad promising to stop the most violent attacks of asthma, nervous cough, colds, extinction of voice, facial neuralgia and insomnia, and to combat all laryngeal and respiratory ailments, just by inhaling the smoke of the Cannabis Indica Cigarillos.

Exaggeration

Exaggeration is a representation of something in an excessive manner. The exaggerator has been a familiar figure in Western culture since at least Aristotle’s discussion of the alazon: ‘the boaster is regarded as one who pretends to have distinguished qualities which he possesses either not at all or to a lesser degree than he pretends…exaggerating’.

It is the opposite of minimisation.

Words or expressions associated with exaggeration include:

  • catastrophization
  • hyperbole
  • laying it on thick
  • magnification
  • maximization
  • overblowing
  • overplaying
  • overreacting
  • overstating
  • stretching the truth

 

Clutch is using exaggeration tactics and all the companies who are advertising on the Clutch. They must be sued by consumer organizations and independent journalists and also consumers and businesses for deception, fraud and fake reviews.

Manipulation

The boasting and bragging by arrogant or manipulative people has been sent up on stage since the first appearance of the alazon – ‘a stock character in Greek comedy’. Inflated praise in the form of flattery and puffery has a similarly lengthy history.

Amplifying achievements, obstacles and problems to seek attention is an everyday occurrence, as ‘in exaggerating what one feels by magnifying the emotional expression: this is the ploy used by the six-year-old who dramatically twists her face into a pathetic frown, lips quivering, as she runs to complain to her mother about being teased’.

Exaggerating is also a type of deception as well as a means of malingering – magnifying small injuries or discomforts as an excuse to avoid responsibilities.

Clutch is manipulating with fake reviews and all the companies who are advertising on the Clutch. They must be sued by consumer organizations and independent journalists and also consumers and businesses for deception, fraud and fake reviews.

Character assassination

Character assassination typically involves deliberate exaggeration or manipulation of facts.

Clutch is doing Character assassination for them who are not their advertisers and all the companies who are advertising on the Clutch. They must be sued by consumer organizations and independent journalists and also consumers and businesses for deception, fraud and fake reviews.

Cognitive distortions

Cognitive behavioral therapy views magnification (as opposed to minimization) as unconscious, unrealistic mental processing or cognitive distortion, which can take the form of probability overestimation or of catastrophizing. This is better known as ‘making a big deal out of nothing.’ ‘Whereas probability overestimation refers to exaggerating the “likelihood” of an event, catastrophizing refers to exaggerating the “importance” of the event’.  Closely related ‘is overgeneralizing, where one takes a single negative event and see it as a never-ending pattern of defeat’.

Another form of cognitive exaggeration is inflation of the difficulty of achieving a goal after attaining it, possibly to improve self-esteem.

In depression, exaggerated all-or-nothing thinking can form a self-reinforcing cycle: these thoughts might be called emotional amplifiers because, as they go around and around, they become more intense. Here are some typical all-or-nothing thoughts:

  • my efforts are either a success or they are an abject failure
  • I am/other people are either all good or all bad
  • if you’re not with us, you’re against us

 

Clutch is doing cognitive behavior therapy for them who are their advertisers and all the companies who are advertising on the Clutch. They must be sued by consumer organizations and independent journalists and also consumers and businesses for deception, fraud and fake reviews.

Reaction formation

Reaction formation (German: Reaktionsbildung) is believed to be a defense mechanism in which emotions and impulses which are anxiety-producing or perceived to be unacceptable are mastered by exaggeration of the directly opposing tendency.

Clutch is doing reaction formation for them who are their advertisers and all the companies who are advertising on the Clutch. They must be sued by consumer organizations and independent journalists and also consumers and businesses for deception, fraud and fake reviews.

Puffery Origin

In a legal context, the term originated in the 1892 English Court of Appeal case Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Company, which centred on whether a monetary reimbursement should be paid when an influenza preventive device failed to work. The manufacturers had paid for advertising stating that £100 would be paid in such circumstances then failed to follow this promise. Part of their defence was that such a statement was “mere puff” and not meant to be taken seriously. While the defence ultimately lost the case, the principle was confirmed that certain statements made by advertisers that were obviously not made in a serious manner could be exempt from usual rules relating to promises in open contracts.

Federal Trade Commission definition

The United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) defined puffery as a “term frequently used to denote the exaggerations reasonably to be expected of a seller as to the degree of quality of his product, the truth or falsity of which cannot be precisely determined.”

The FTC stated in 1984 that puffery does not warrant enforcement action by the Commission. In its FTC Policy Statement on Deception, the Commission stated: “The Commission generally will not pursue cases involving obviously exaggerated or puffing representations, i.e., those that the ordinary consumers do not take seriously.” e.g., “The Finest Fried Chicken in the World.”

Puff piece

Puff piece is an idiom for a journalistic form of puffery: an article or story of exaggerating praise that often ignores or downplays opposing viewpoints or evidence to the contrary. In some cases, reviews of films, albums, or products (e.g., a new car or television set) may be considered to be “puff pieces”, due to the actual or perceived bias of the reviewer: a review of a product, film, or event that is written by a sympathetic reviewer or by an individual who has a connection to the product or event in question, either in terms of an employment relationship or other links. For example, a major media conglomerate that owns both print media and record companies may instruct an employee in one of its newspapers to do a review of an album which is being released by the conglomerate’s record company.

Although some journalists may assert their professional independence and integrity, and insist on producing an unbiased review, in other cases a writer may succumb to the pressure and pen a biased “puff piece” which praises the product or event while omitting any discussion of any shortcomings. In some cases, “puff pieces” purport to provide a review of the product or event, but instead merely provide peacock words (“an amazing recording”); weasel words (“probably one of the most important albums of the 2000s”; “Perhaps one of the leading bands of the 2010s”) and tabloid-style filler which is peripheral or irrelevant to assessing the qualities of the product or event (“during the filming, there were rumours that romantic sparks flew between the two co-leads, who were often seen talking together on the set”).

The financial relationship between the product company or entertainment firm and the reviewer is not always as obvious as a cash payment. In some cases, a small group of reviewers may be given an exclusive invitation to test-drive a new sports car or see a new film before it is released. This privileged access to the product may lead the reviewer to do a biased review, either out of a sense of obligation, or because of a concern that the failure to produce a “puff piece” will lead to the loss of future preview privileges. In some cases, the potential for bias in invitation-only preview sessions is substantially heightened when the reviewers are flown in to the location for the review, given fancy hotel rooms, and provided catered food and drinks during the actual review. The most egregious cases of this situation occur when, instead of inviting the reviewers to the company headquarters or another logical venue, the company gives all-expense paid tickets to Hawaii or Mexico, and holds the preview screening of the film or the product launch there.

A particular use for puff pieces may be in health journalism. Providers of alternative medicine may be unable to make claims due to laws against false advertising, but they may be able to place stories and testimonials with journalists who can write as they wish under press freedom laws. Recruiting health journalists to write puff pieces may be a lucrative way to build the reputation of a product that has no effect.
