Things you may have missed: interesting recent legal developments
Looking back at the blog, we have covered a wide range of subjects over the last few days. Here are some highlights worth looking at that you may have missed:
- The BART controversy continues to simmer. Now it appears the FCC is looking into claims that shutting off service was unlawful (via The Hill). Here, here, and here provide a good background for the uninitiated.
- Microsoft has gotten itself embroiled in a Geolocation tracking lawsuit much like the ones Apple is already facing. We’ll also have more on this soon.
- Messing with Texas just got a little easier, as a Texas judge has denied Texas DOT’s application for an injunction preventing the sale of books using the phrase “Don’t Mess With Texas” which is trademarked by the Texas DOT. Here’s why.
- Some important developments with copyrights for musicians, Lamebook fans, cloud music services, and why it was not the best week for Jay-Z and Kanye West.
Hope everyone has a good Thursday. More to come soon.
