* Video Prof Sues

Personal Stuff/Random News
The purveyors of the worst teaching tool in history, "Video Professor", are trying to sue critics of their product.

Of course, rather than addressing those criticisms, instead the company has decided to sue. Greg Beck writes in to point out that the company (which tells people to look for reviews online) has sued 100 anonymous critics of the company claiming trademark violations and defamation. Lots of companies seem to think negative reviews constitute a trademark violation, but a review is a perfectly legitimate use of a trademark.
As for "Defamation"... it is my considered opinion that the product is not worth owning. There you go - now it's a review.
