Skype lawyers have sent a cease and desist letter to Jan Geirnaert, telling him his popular blogs, and put him in legal joepardy.
He removed his blogs, saying “I’m not a sadomasochist. Neither am I an idiot. By doing this, Skype sent me the signal not do any of this blogging wise, business wise, in any way.”
Robert Scoble says, “the lawyers at Skype screwed the pooch.”
I don’t know why anyone would put a company name in their URL, but it’s been abundantly clear that Geirnaert wasn’t hostile to Skype. So once again, lawyers have bullied a blogger into submission and hurt a brand. Pretty dim on Skype’s part to let that happen.
