Internet Lawyer John Dozier is at the Affiliate Summit this week in Vegas at the Rio. I'll be at our booth in the Exhibit hall mid-day for several hours on both Monday and Tuesday. The conference is sold out but if some of our clients need a pass to get in just let me know. Catch up with me today at the "Meet Market".
Now that the Holiday season is over, we are back to work at Traverse Internet Law. We'll be continuing with our commentary on the misuse of business names and the five most nefarious abuses.
I've noticed a trend towards web businesses getting themselves into more trouble by trying to manage a problem themselves. Even be careful with what you ask for when dealing with problems. Solutions are often the most difficult aspect of remediating defamatory posts, copyright infringement, and business name infringement. For you golfers out there, here is a good example of what I am talking about. Last January some PGA players were ready to head off to Hawaii for the Sony Invitational. The discussion turned to the prospects for success at the US Open at Torrey Pines. They all agreed Tiger would win. Unless, one responded, he breaks his leg!
Be careful what you ask for.
