As usual with your sharp eyes, you were the first to notice that Craig has started posting about the legal issues surrounding the IBC controversy. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for the compliment, Janice! I'm not sure if it's my sharp eyes or the fact that I live on the West Coast, am a night owl, and use Google Reader to keep up with the latest posts!

Sharp eyes or not, you serve the community well by alerting us to Mr. Manson's fine legal mind and his excellent series on the Internet and the legal rights involved.

Thanks to you and Mr. Manson both.

Happy Dae.
