The Seeds Here Now article and Seeds Here Now Reviews page have been removed after a threat to take legal action was made by Seeds Here Now. Because the reviews and article were public opinion, we could have left them up. The article we had published here was not in any danger of being removed, but reviews are different. Reviews can be taken down by legal action under certain circumstances. We don’t feel the need to promote anyone who doesn’t want us to, so we took down both the article we had written for SHN and the reviews that were left by their customers. We also did not feel the need to waste any money to prove a point.
As a result, we are no longer supporting their seed bank.
Their seed bank’s name and images have been redacted from all areas of the website (except here in the explanation), in addition to removing all the past social media posts we had made for them. This includes our partners and their online presences who were also promoting them.
We do not take false accusations or threats lightly. We also don’t take most of them very seriously because we work in the news industry and know more about libel, defamation and online law than most lawyers do. And we follow the law (most news sources do).
Using threats of legal actions to try and “bully” or “harass” people is illegal. Just like making “false accusations” is illegal.
There are plenty of other seed banks to check out on the Seed Banks page.
The statements made in this article are a summary of facts and actions taken by SBM in response to a number of emails that are on file. To speak with our attorney, please contact our legal team at [email protected]
