Good.

I've no love for PA, but Dave is a jerk of the first order, I'm glad someone finally put the guy in his place.

I find this worrying. Can individuals no longer express their concerns about companies? How are writers supposed to pass on their misgivings about publishers if/when those publishers 'behave badly'? Or have I got hold of the wrong end of the stick? ;)

It looks like Dave K. may have tried to defend this without a lawyer. If that is true, small wonder he lost. Hopefully he can get a lawyer to do the appeal.

@fiona glass

this was a lawsuit by two guys not a guy and a company, expressing opinions on a company are still okay as long as they are just opinions
