The story's all over the 'sphere by now, but I thought I'd throw in my $0.02. If you don't know, the New York Times is suing a blogger over a parody page that pretends to contain official corrections of errors made by columnists. I'm no lawyer, but as with so many things the point isn't whether or not something is legal, but whether or not you can get away with it. The NYT figured it could bully the blogger into pulling the parody down -- legitimately or not -- but now it's the newspaper that's looking foolish. The last thing the NYT needs is another controversy over it's level of professionalism, and it's bizarre to me that they'd even bother acknowledging the parody.
