In its escalating fight against fake product reviews, Amazon has for the first time started suing its own sellers instead of just going after other websites that promise to write five-star recommendations for cash.

Law firm Piper Alderman is back to fight for disgruntled Vodafone customers with a three-year old class action lawsuit that aims to take the telco for all its worth for alleged bad service in 2010-11.

Apple has been involved in lawsuits all over the world in the last two years. From a billion-dollar windfall in the US to bitter defeat here in Australia, the Apple legal team has had nothing short of a rollercoaster time of it. Now Apple is in legal hot water in New Zealand, not against another tech giant, but against a disgruntled customer over a $NZ35 purchase.
When a group of iPhone 4 owners realised their screens were broken, they did what angry American mobs do best, and rallied together for a class action to take Apple to court. They sued over misrepresentations allegedly made by Apple in relation to the strength of the device's screen glass.
