Free Speech For Dummies

On calacanis.dom, there is an entry, "Dealing with Dummies, For Dummies", detailing how the "For Dummies" franchise (owned by Wiley Publishing) threatened a blogger for using "For Dummies" in the title of one of his entries. Apparently they are searching blogs constantly to find infractions !

Now, as a person raised on the comments, "for dummies" is a common phrase. Therefore it is absolutely ridiculous to assume that someone using that phrase is trying to steal the reputation of the "For Dummies" franchise.

I am looking forward to their legal threats so I can post them on this blog. Hmmm...
