Harvard CO-OP Gets an "F" on Intellectual Property

"Under my proposed 'Anti-IP Troll Free Speech Protection And Competition Enhancement Act,' Congress would give people a right to gain both injunctive relief and statutory penalties when harassed with frivolous intellectual property claims.

"Because as this most recent example of 'Murphy’s Law at the Harvard Coop' demonstrates, it has become just all too easy to make vague claims about 'intellectual property' to justify all manner of harassment. And unless we provide some possible consequences for abusing people with bogus intellectual copyright claims, people and businesses that want to suppress speech or hinder competition will keep doing it." —Harold Feld (via A2K)
