Dark Patterns: an overview for brand owners

A session at Skillswap makes patterns

Following on from Harry's UX Brighton 2010 presentation on Dark Patterns for Designers, this presentation looks at Dark Patterns from a Brand Owner's perspective, discussing, among other things, the problem of Google Instant auto-completing searches for your brand name with the word 'scam', and why this can happen.
