Some Snarky Company-Specific Posts

Some companies in our crosshairs this year:

Most Popular Blog Posts of the Year

The most popular blog posts of the year are as follows:

  1. Scribd Puts My Old Uploads Behind a Paywall and Goes Onto My Shitlist. Nearly two times the traffic of number 2 on the list. Putting profanity in the post title still works as a traffic booster.
  2. Deleted Facebook and MySpace Posts Are Discoverable--Romano v. Steelcase. (Topsy 100) I still can't figure out why this post was so popular; it just reminded us of something we already knew. See also the related but overreaching Millen v. Hummingbird Speedway.
  3. (and 5.) Twitter Clarifies Usage Rules, but AFP Still Claims Unbridled Right to Use Content Posted to "Twitter/TwitPic." An end-of-the-year hit (the #5 post) as a follow-up: Court Rejects Agence France-Presse's Attempt to Claim License to Haiti Earthquake Photos Through Twitter/Twitpic Terms of Service—AFP v. Morel. Both posts were Topsy 100.
  4. Viacom v. YouTube Summary Judgment Motions Highlights. Not surprisingly, the gossip about the lawsuit is way more popular than the blog post on the actual ruling.

One other post reached Topsy 100: Ripoff Report Defeats Extortion Claim, But Plaintiffs Keep Trying—AEI v. Xcentric.

Lists of Yore

My previous top 10 lists are from 2009, 2008, 2007, and 2006. Before that, John Ottaviani and I put together a list of top Internet IP cases for 2005, 2004, and 2003.
