Amazon Sued Over Prime Video Ads: Class-Action Suit Alleges Deception

In response to this measure, Wilbert Napoleon, a resident of Eastvale, California, U.S.A., said, ``Washington state and California consumer protection laws prohibit Amazon from engaging in unfair competition and deceptive business conduct and practices. The company filed a lawsuit against Amazon, alleging that it violates the law.

Mr. Napoleon said, ``For years, users have purchased or renewed Amazon Prime Video subscriptions with the belief that ``no ads will be inserted while streaming.'' 'The introduction of advertising and the requirement to pay additional fees to opt out of advertising are immoral, unethical, oppressive, unscrupulous and harmful to consumers.' .

In this lawsuit, Mr. Napoleon is seeking unspecified monetary damages from Amazon, including punitive damages, and an injunction to stop Amazon from implementing advertising on Prime Video.
