Browsing around on the Internet, I found this amusingly titled case: Los Angeles Times v. Free Republic. It is the case that ended Free Republic’s practice of posting articles online in their entirety. But I just like the name.
It reminded me of another funny case name — that of the Pentagon Papers case: New York Times v. United States.
I thought to myself: if I had unlimited money and time, it might be fun to create several organizations with names signifying concepts that nobody can argue with. For example, I might call one such company “Truth, Justice, and the American Way.” Then I would form web sites for these companies, and routinely copy entire articles from the Los Angeles Times on a daily basis.
All with the juvenile goal of inciting litigation with captions reading:
Los Angeles Times v. Truth, Justice, and the American Way
Los Angeles Times v. Everything Americans Hold Sacred
Los Angeles Times v. People Who Actually Want to Try to Hurt the Terrorists
You get the idea. It could be kinda fun, don’t you think? Make up your own case captions in the comments.
