Comment Will it stand? (Score 1) 154

I think it's probably a good thing too, but will it stand the test of judicial review?

If I am a business and I want to put a non-disparagement clause or review gag order into my contracts, I don't see why I can't. Nobody is forced to do business with me, and they entered knowingly (presumably) into the agreement.

I'm 32 and I know and watch all of the people mentioned. I don't want Casey Neistat. His content is garbage that doesn't apply to me.

They probably acquired his company because of the political pull that he has; he convinced hundreds/thousands of other youtubers to publicly endorse Hillary on their channels.

This. Looks pretty cut and dry to me. I love how everyone gushed all over it when it was announced. Made no sense to me that a business owner would make a decision like that out of the goodness of his heart. I know. I sound like a Scrooge.

But that's how it is. Start your own business so you can be a shot-caller.

I have a feeling that repeat offenses will grow the fine, eventually leading to prosecution. I think 3/4m is a pretty good deterrent to others. It's kind of a warning shot to other venues that would do the same. Even in this example: I read most of the linked PDF, and the offender fined here stopped blocking wifi 2 months after the FCC fined Marriott. They were still caught.
