Samsung Fined For Fake Online Reviews and Comments

We know in the Apple app store that if you are caught making fake reviews, they completely wipe all the comments on all your products.  However, is this better or worse than getting fined $340K for doing the same thing?  Samsung was found guilty by Taiwan’s Fair Trade Commission for “using a large number of hired writers and designated employees to post good reviews and comments about its own products, and criticism of competitors’ products.”  These criticisms seemed to be mainly focused against HTC.  This article also states that Samsung seems to follow a pattern of cheating.  This is not their first time getting in trouble for astroturfing or fake advertising.
