Well kids, it’s too nice outside to be sitting in front of a computer, so I am getting ready to head east and submerge myself in something warm, delicious and inviting.Sheesh, get your mind out of the gutter, I’m talking about the Atlantic Ocean!
Did you all see Bruce Rogow’s comments on the Michelle Spence-Jones prosecution?
That’s not my area of expertise, but is the bowtied one ever really wrong?
The you have the State House passing the “slip-and-fall” revision to the Owens case:
“We have been operating under the current law for eight years and what we have found simply is that the cost of defending frivolous slip and fall lawsuits have risen dramatically when compared with the same businesses operating in other states,” said Rep. Rep. Gary Aubuchon, a Cape Coral Republican who sponsored the bill, which passed 110-2.
Specifically as a result of the Owens decision? Has any such data been publicly released?I’m not a PI lawyer but that just sounds like complete bullcrap.
Meanwhile, unbelievably, Viacom has acted like a total d$%k:
For years, Viacom continuously and secretly uploaded its content to YouTube, even while publicly complaining about its presence there. It hired no fewer than 18 different marketing agencies to upload its content to the site. It deliberately “roughed up” the videos to make them look stolen or leaked. It opened YouTube accounts using phony email addresses. It even sent employees to Kinko’s to upload clips from computers that couldn’t be traced to Viacom. And in an effort to promote its own shows, as a matter of company policy Viacom routinely left up clips from shows that had been uploaded to YouTube by ordinary users. Executives as high up as the president of Comedy Central and the head of MTV Networks felt “very strongly” that clips from shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report should remain on YouTube.
Man, when Comedy Central plays dirty things are really bad.
Before I go, don’t forget to get ’em while you can, that feeling should last around two years, and it really is always about the Nazis.
Have a great weekend everyone!
