In the next five years there will be over 2000 TLDs including my new favorite – dotCEO. Many people think .com IS […]

Thumbnail image for FTC goes after jerk.com for misleading consumers on “people reviews”

As you guys know I follow the FTC pretty closely especially when it comes to web commerce or services. Complaint sites and reputation management are big business.
