Long time readers of PoliBlog may recall the run-in I had over the name “PoliBlog” with the Seattle Times, now Verizon is getting into the act. Apparently they just started the thing on November 1st.

Why is it so hard for these people to Google the name before they start using it?

The page has very poor access in terms of communication (no webmaster to e-mail, for example), although I did e-mail their representative for copyright violations, even though that isn’t the issue, so we will see what happens.

    What’s really lame is that they are using “poli” for policy, rather than politics. I was tempted to leave a comment - at least the moderator would see it - chiding their trademark violation.

    If I don’t hear from the copyright guy PDQ (i.e., by mid-week) I may have to start doing that. Indeed, I might have to mobilize my own little Army of Davids to that end. ;)

    Sue the bastards!

    Good luck! It’s nice when you have friends who are attorneys.
