If you enjoy the fact that a company called PeerViews apparently claims ownership of the term “Small Law,” you’re going to love this latest piece of IP ridiculousness.
Rapper Chris Webby has sent a cease and desist order to the Webby Awards. He wants them to stop using the hashtag, #webby.
I’m pretty sure that trademarking hashtags is one of the prerequisites for the Rapture.
And yes, of course Chris Webby made a video about his legal complaint…
I did all that not because the cease and desist letter scared me, but because Chris Webby made a YouTube clip. Can you say #serious?
We’re fighting over hashtags, people. Long live lawyers.
