I’m grateful to Salon.com for running this story, about how the people behind Pets Warehouse sued a bunch of hobbiests. From reading the article, it sounds like a classic case of someone using the legal system to intimidate and outspend an opponent into submission. I doubt very much if Salon.com will roll over and play dead in quite the same way, and so they’re making sure the story of the little guy is heard.
Salon.com is a great online publication. They have outstanding political coverage, and do a great job of covering technology in a way that no one else really does, with thoughtful, in-depth writing of the highest quality.
