Stories From This Past Week You Don’t Want to Miss
by Eric S. Crusius on September 5, 2011
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.
