Eric Goldman spoke with the American Association for Physician Leadership about how to respond to negative reviews; to the Journal IE about how Ukraine is employing face recognition technology to identify invading Russian troops killed on its soil; and to Fee Stories about the “Shop Safe Act”, which targets online retailers by making them liable for counterfeit goods third parties may sell on their platforms unless they navigate extreme, onerous, and costly compliance measures.

“This bill will kill online marketplaces and make markets less efficient,” says Eric Goldman, a legal professor at Santa Clara University. “The net competitive effects, then, are that consumers will pay higher prices, consumers will lose their ability to find long-tail items and incur higher search costs to do so, existing market leaders will consolidate their dominant positions, and hundreds of thousands of people will lose their jobs.”
