Patient sues dentist over gag order, gets Medical Justice to backtrack

30 05 2012

A patient has filed a class-action lawsuit against his New York dentist over her attempts to use copyright law to gag the patient’s online reviews of her services. Robert Lee, who recently moved to Maryland, has asked a New York federal court to declare that his comments are protected under copyright’s fair use doctrine, that the dentist’s attempts to gag him breach dental ethics, and that the “privacy agreement” the patient was forced to sign is invalid and illegal under New York law.


The Center for Democracy and Technology also filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission “arguing that Medical Justice was itself engaging in “deceptive and unfair business practices” through the sale of these contracts.”
