Lawsuit fever...it's contagious
A few weeks ago some folks at the Miami Herald thought it would be fun to threaten me with a lawsuit.
They wanted me to delete some Herald photos from my blog.
But now Herald blogger Natalie McNeal - whose blog is called the "Frugalista Files" - has hired Chicago attorney Alexis Hart McDowell, Esq., to send cease and desist letters to bloggers who also call themselves "frugalistsas."
Seems that McNeal has trademarked the name "frugalista."
Must be something in the water at the Herald. Don't they have better things to do?
We're not sure what the merits of McNeal's claim are.
But we do like what Jose Duran at Miami New Times Riptide 2.0 blog had to say about it: "Somebody should serve her for being a boring blogger."
