Platforms, Delivery Men of “Fake Advertisement”: The paradox of regulation regarding platforms liability for hosting "fake news" that amounts to be unfair commercial practice
      Anna Zanathy
Abstract: "Fake news" has undoubtedly become one of the main buzzwords of the 21st century. However, since "fake news" is not a legal term, it can take different forms of unlawful content such as unfair competition practice. Unfair competition practice generally refers to "a specific constellation of facts which involves commercial or business conduct that does not satisfy the generally accepted requirements of fairness" and therefore it includes any content that discredits the commercial reputation of a competitor by disseminating false allegations (unfair competition content).
