More idiocy in the dust-up between FunnyJunk and The Oatmeal: FunnyJunk’s lawyer is not only going after The Oatmeal (a/k/a Matthew Inman), but the charities to whom he forwarded the funds he raised as part of his response to FunnyJunk’s threats.
I refer back t my earlier post where I stated that one of the best things a company in this kind of public tug-o-war can do is get good advice from qualified professionals. Apparently FunnyJunk did not do this. QED. A pox on FunnyJunk’s house!
Of course, as the TechCrunch article points out, Matthew Inman seems intent on throwing gasoline on the fire rather than seeking rational resolution to this nonsense. A pox on both of their houses.
Cases like this are the poster-children for why people role their eyes and groan when the subject of lawyers and law suits comes up.
