Samsung was forced to apologize for an ill-conceived PR ploy that involved hiring Taiwanese students to write bad reviews of rival HTC’s smartphones. Samsung’s apology: “Samsung Electronics remains committed to engaging in transparent and honest communications with consumers as outlined in the company's Online Communications Credo. We have encouraged all Samsung Electronics employees worldwide to remain faithful to our Credo. The recent incident was unfortunate, and occurred due to insufficient understanding of these fundamental principles. Samsung Electronics Taiwan (SET) has ceased all marketing activities that involve the posting of anonymous comments, and will ensure that all SET online marketing activities will be fully compliant with the company's Online Communications Credo. We regret any inconvenience this incident may have caused.”
