Legal While Eugenia has already detailed just how intricate and impressive the MPEG-LA's efforts have been to basically set up the foundations that would allow them to sue just about everyone - their vague and unclear licenses are used in everything from DVD players to digital camcorders, and as such, it's hard to avoid them. Many others claim that the MPEG-LA won't ever go rogue (or this, take your pick). I think those people will be interested to know that one of the MPEG-LA's subsidiaries, a cut-and-clear patent troll, has launched several patent infringement suits earlier this year. This patent troll's CEO? Larry Horn - yes, the same Larry Horn who's also CEO of the MPEG-LA.

Before we get going: both. At the same time. Don't care where. Yum

Sorry. Carry on. Just some lightheartedness for today's smile.

You know Thom, for making our eyes bleed from exposure to a Palin picture, you're going to The Special Hell.

The one reserved for child molesters and people who talk in theatres.
