February/March 2016: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Art.com (a website that sells posters and other home décor products) by allegedly deceptively offering perpetual sales on www.art.com, www.posters.com, and www.allposters.com. According to the complaint, the websites deceive consumers by making them believe sales and discounted prices are going to end when, according to plaintiffs, each sale is simply replaced by another. (Knapp et al v. Art.com, Inc. and Does 1-50, Case No. 16-cv-768, N. D. CA.)
