Coerced Reviewing

Some corporations attempt to control the nature of the reviews issued for a product.

For example, it appears to be an open secret of the video game industry that reviewers are only allowed to publish their reviews prior to a given date if they award a review score above a certain threshold.

This is a violation on the part of the controlling corporation, though it doesn't look good for the reviewer either.
