German court ruled that Amazon Dash buttons violate the law




The Dash buttons, with which a certain product can be purchased at the touch of a button, do not comply with German law. That has determined a court. Customers would not be sufficiently informed about the price they have to pay.

The case has been filed by a German consumer organization, reports Reuters news agency. He was of the opinion that consumers are not sufficiently informed when purchasing products via the Dash buttons, because the price of the product in question can not be seen. The German court went along in that reasoning, so the Dash buttons from Amazon do not comply with the law.

In a response to Reuters, an Amazon spokesperson said that he did not agree with the ruling. It would hamper innovation, and the spokesperson points out that consumers can decide for themselves whether they want to use Dash buttons or not.

Furthermore, it is unclear what Amazon will do with the statement. It is possible that it no longer offers the Dash buttons in Germany, or is going to modify them to show the price of the relevant product.
