THE MASTER GETS EGG ON ITS FACE AND SUES THE HEN

Not sure what it means, exactly, but it says something. Seems that someone has established a blog called Info, Comments, Opinions and Facts About Goldman Sachs (H/T Ritholtz). The URL address is www.goldmansachs666.com, and it contains a prominantly displayed disclaimer stating, among other things that "[t]his website has NOT been approved by Goldman Sachs, nor does this website have any affiliation with Goldman Sachs. This website was designed to provide information about Goldman Sachs direct from the public, and NOT from Goldman Sachs's marketing and public relations departments. You may find the Goldman Sachs website at www.goldmansachs.com."

Nevertheless, seems that Obama's Lord & True Master the investment bank has retained a law firm to try to force him to shut down the website. According to Ritholtz, the cease-and-desist letter claims that the blog
“'violates several of Goldman Sachs’ intellectual property rights' and also 'implies a relationship' with the bank itself.”

Despite the fact that it disclaims any connection.

And has a URL address of www.goldmansachs666.com.

And the author writes: "Yes, I am short Goldman Sachs stock. I believe this company is evil and should not exist. We need to begin to break up companies that have as much control over world finances as Goldman Sachs."

This piece of shit suit should be dismissed. Swiftly. But let's see if it even gets that far, or will they bully and oppress him into shutting it down before it gets there.

It should be dismissed, but Goldman will probably keep it going long enough with bullshit motions and discovery requests, that the author will be better off financially to close the site.

That's what I fear. Maybe some lawyer who litigates in the intellectual property arena will take this up pro bono.

Or maybe this guy has the funds to ride it out for a while. The best thing that can happen is for GS to catch bad press over this and receive mockery. Which would embarrass the Administration.

This is the sort of thing Maddow should pick up, instead of her incessant snark about the teabag campaign.

Yeah, but everybody "gets" what teabag really means, so that's funny. Guffaw.

So the real deal here is to get this guy's blog to the media. It's getting some momentum through the interwebs, but CNN or someone like that has to pick up the fact that GS is trying to stop this guy from speaking.

This is what I fear: that this could be an attack on the cornerstone of free speech. That speaking out against The Masters will get you fined and jailed.

I think the same guy, Mike Morgan, went to war with Lennar (a homebuilder) and ended up settling out of court with them.

He seems ready to fight this one out. Plus, I saw this a few days ago and all of a sudden it's all over the place, so it seems to have served its purpose.

It's refreshing to see the Goldman Sith Lords miscalculate, if just this once.
