On June 15, 201, Rocky Agrawal, a Social Media expert who writes for TechCrunch and is reviewing the Daily deal industry wrote an article on the legal challenges facing Groupon, Living Social and other Daily Deal sites. Agrawal states that Groupon and Living Social may be violating several key aspects of consumer protection law. Because this is a relatively new industry in some cases the specific legal handling is unclear, however in others the law is clear cut.
We recommend contacting Osler, a Canadian Law Firm with offices in New York, for more detailed legal advice on this topic.
