One thing I'll do is never use Shopzilla anymore - oops, I haven't written Shopzilla®... Will I get sued?
As bizarre as this might sound it doesn't come unexpected. I have
written numerous times that Google creates an atmosphere of fear when it
comes to links so that more and more companies will try to forbid you
linking to them. It will cripple the foundations of hyptertxtt itself
and then miracualously Google will present the solution: a proprietary
Web based on Google+, authorship markup and other Google products.
Why can't fix the typos and republish the comment? When I remove the old comment and publish the new fixed one Inbound will show the one with the mistakes again :-(
It's "hypertext" and "miraculously".
We've work on the comment threads scheduled - I've added your request to Basecamp :)
One blogger who reviewed a client's product nofollowed all the links she pointed to my client's site in her review. I politely asked if there was a specific reason she did this and if she could remove the nofollow tag.
She immediately responded that she would remove the tags but that various sites had come back asking her to add the nofollow attribute b/c they had gotten penalized by Google.
W/ all these penalties and backtracking, it's no wonder everybody is confused on what the hell they should be doing.
:D Funny!! Being sued for linking to them... "Trade Mark infringement" lol
It's not the trademark infringement they will want, it's reputation damage / loss of earnings which are often the stable of such claims with IPO also thrown into the pot as it's very expensive stuff to defend should it go further
Isn't this the virtual equivalent of posting a business's addresss or phone number? Would be a dangerous precedent to set for a companies location to be covered under trademark/copyright
This is just silly! So sorry...
