West Simsbury, CT (PRWEB) March 9, 2006
We want to warn the online Web site development community that Global Internet Solutions who’s Web site is located at http://www.gisol.com claims on its Web site that "Global Internet Solutions has won the award from the prestigious Webawards competition." This is in fact not true. They have never entered the WebAward competition, nor have they received any awards from the Web Marketing Association.
We have received several complaints regarding Global Internet Solutions and have learned that many, if not all of the awards, they promote on their Web site were not earned. It is apparent from their unethical and illegal use of our logo on their Web site that anyone considering purchasing their services should be warned.
Displaying a WebAward icon on your Website is a sign that a company meets or exceeds the highest standards of excellence on the Web today,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “However, it is unfortunate when a company tries to be recognized for something it did not earn. We will do everything in our power, even if that requires legal means, to insure only WebAward winners display our icon of there Web site.”
