Is this behavior ethical, clearly not. Is this legal? Well... in Germany a judge ruled for the EU that companies can not edit their own Wikipedia articles (or their client's articles) because it violates the EU's rules against openness in advertising. That is, consumers have the right to know when they are receiving information from a company and a right to not be deceived about the information's source. So no, in Europe this would not be legal. However, U.S. laws haven't caught up.
Even so, all the major PR societies in the U.S. have made it policy that their members not engage in this sort of underhanded marketing as it brings disrepute on their profession.
Should I be reporting this unethical behavior here? Yes. This website isn't limited to simple reports on illegal behavior - but to alert consumers about "ripoffs", and I think this unethical behavior is a blatant ripoff and speaks volumes about QuiBid's unethical business practices.
