Keillor.jpgIn a decidely unfunny move, Liberal comic Garrison Keillor is threatening to sue MNspeaks blog over a parody slogan on a t-shirt they sold. As Attorney Kraig Baker told the Igniting Buzz Conference yesterday, sending a cease and desist letter to a blogger is a really dim idea. Yet that’s just what Keillor’s lawyers have done.
“You have to think about how important winning legally is to the brand overall,” Baker said. And in this case, Keillor has done big-time damage to his brand among bloggers, who are adding derogatory posts about Keillor by the second.
Of course the Cease and Desist is posted on the MT Speaks blog. “Man, this guy is getting old,” they write.
