    Ridiculous Suit

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...court_parks_dc
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the fuck I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    So you can't write about historically significant people now? Lovely.

    (I realize that there is no final verdict yet. I just think Parks' suit is really disgusting.)

        I personally enjoy Outkast's new raps...and songs.

          She's a public figure, they didn't use her image did they? I have to agree with the Defendants on this one. This is another one of those cases that is sad to see.

                Something like that would probably never happen in Canada. America seems to be the law suite capital of the world. Shhheshhh! never mind if a burglar broke into your home in America and he trips and falls down the stairs the owner of the home probably gets sue! Ridiculus is mildly putting it!

                  Outkast is great:

                  Shake it Like a Polaroid Picture! Shake it Like a Polaroid Picture!"

                  Profound.

                      To me, this is a tricky question.
                      Does she want to be a public figure? Its one thing to be a catalyst for change, its another to be a publicity seeking celebrity.

                      If she wants to be known in the public domain, then she's on shakey ground, if she just wants to be a private person, then she should have every right to privacy.

                      Its like actors. Some of them seek the fame and publicity, so can't really criticise when they get unflattering coverage as well. Then there are those who just want to act in a film, and want to have a private life of their own away from the media
                      glare.

                      Mind you... I hate the cult of celebrity, so I'm biased.

                          Sounds like the crux of her case is business.

                            Well this is not a defmation action, so the standards applicable to the voluntary vs. involuntary public figure rules do not necessarily apply. Her image was not used.

                            Its a commercial speech issue. I would have to investigate it more. If the image was used, it would be a slam dunk, but just a name, I don't know, seems weak.
