For being the last week of summer, last week was pretty busy. Let’s take a quick look:
- First, as I posted last night, a blogger was held liable for blogging the truth. Have no fear, this seems like a decision destined to be overturned on appeal.
- The ongoing trademark saga between a little known author and the Texas DoT made for some interesting reading. We have the story here and our analysis here (Why you can sometimes “Mess with Texas”).
- Groupon’s CEO sent out a meandering memo to his staff defending his company. We later learned that that very memorandum may delay Groupon’s IPO.
- My firm sued Verizon business. The story is here.
- What bothers me about Yelp.
- Another silly case, an embarrassed substitute teacher, and our initial take on the Protect IP Act.
We’ll have more in a bit.
