Short on time to write this morning, and missed this one during the week whilst I was travelling………
Blogger Mike Morgan is standing firm against demands from Goldman Sachs that he close down his web site. Note, not remove a particular posting that they object to, but close down the entire site.
The law firm Chadbourne & Parke’s wrote to him on April 8, a mere 12 days after the site was put up, alleging that the site “violates several of Goldman Sachs’ intellectual property rights” and also “implies a relationship” with the bank itself. Despite the fact that Morgan’s web site prominently displays this:
About this Site: This website has NOT been approved by Goldman Sachs, nor does this website have any affiliation with Goldman Sachs. This website was designed to provide information about Goldman Sachs direct from the public, and NOT from Goldman Sachs’s marketing and public relations departments. You may find the official Goldman Sachs website at http://www.goldmansachs.com/
Born on March 26, 2009, this website is an open forum for facts and discussion about what part Goldman Sachs and their executives played in the current Global Economic Crisis.
Mike Morgan is critical of Goldman Sachs, and its investment policy – in a free democracy he should be able to be so.
He is calling for other bloggers to assist by providing links to him and/or any information they have concerning Goldman Sachs.
Happy to oblige Mr Morgan, more power to your elbow. Expect a longer post on this when I am stationary!
