I was already against SOPA before the internet blackout today, so Wikipedia et al. shutting down didn't necessarily impact my thoughts on the legislation. However, it did make me realize how much I have grown accustomed to using Wikipedia in everyday life. I know it isn't always perfect, but for the quick refresher or primer on most topics, it is an invaluable resource. It also made me wonder whether any of our readers were impacted by the action. Did you change your mind on SOPA one way or… [read post]

Protecting yourself and your clients is more than just about the law we know. Tragedy could strike at any time. A hard drive quits on you. Files get corrupted from a sudden surge of electricity. Files can get lost based upon an immediate loss of power without proper battery backup systems. This should be a concern of lawyers in Rhode Island practicing divorce. You and your clients deserve to be protected in more ways than one. I've tried and tested virtually every major internet backup system from… [read post]

These crimes can now include activities that use a tablet or a smartphone. Some of the more popular Internet crimes include: *Sex crimes *Credit card… [read post]

No I'm Blogging This by Andre Charland I taught a class this week at Gangplank, an awesome collaborative co-working space in Chandler, on some of the legalities of blogging. It was part of Gangplank Academy. As I was going through my notes in preparation of this class, it occurred to me that there are some critical questions every blogger should ask themselves before publishing a new blog post. 1. Is all the information in your blog verifiable? 2. Is every statement that isn’t… [read post]

Over the past year or two , Leyendecker & Lemire has seen a huge rise in potential clients coming to us regarding lawsuits regarding illegal downloading of movies.  In the past two years there have been several prominent lawsuits filed against thousands of alleged infringers.  In fact,  a company called the US Copyright Group (“USCG”) has built a business of approaching independent film makers (usually films that have won OSCARS®) to allow USCG to enforce the rights on the film makers… [read post]

Frequently Adding Content Is Crucial I wrote a post recently highlighting the benefits of blogging for your firm. We hear “the experts” tell us all the time that we need a blog. I know plenty of lawyers that have set one up. They blog for awhile, get too busy, and before they know it, the blog hasn’t been updated in 4 months. Actively Blogging Is The Key So what can creating new content, ie: active blogging, do for you? Here is a convincing study from HubSpot: A study of 2,168 HubSpot… [read post]

Before Maria Stengart quit her job, she was already making plans to sue her employer. She e-mailed her lawyer during business hours from her company-issued laptop, though she was circumspect enough to use her personal Web-based Yahoo e-mail account. It was not until discovery in the ensuing hostile-workplace, constructive-discharge case that she learned company lawyers had a copy of the message, which was automatically saved on the laptop's hard drive as a temporary file. Now a Bergen County judge,… [read post]

// This is no joke! A stand-up comedian sued by her husband's family for making Jewish mother-in-law jokes gets to enjoy the punchline after a federal judge threw the case out of court. The comedian's descriptions of her in-laws, though laced with implications of racism, were merely "colorful, figurative rhetoric," U.S. District Judge Mary Cooper said in dismissing the suit, Edelman v. Croonquist, 09-cv-1938. Sunda Croonquist, whose comedy routine for years has been to describe her life as a… [read post]

A few months ago, a couple of our China lawyers did a project for a company looking for various ways to bring its internet game to China.  Now that the project is over, I cleaned up my files and came across an initial email interaction between the client and me, that went something like the following (the point of which is that China’s internet is different from the West, and legally complicated): Q. How can we register trademarks in China? We’ve already registered them in the… [read post]
