2012 Year in Review
2012 was a good year, with a variety of professional and personal pursuits.
Professionally, I had many good experiences:
- I achieved a successful result for my client in a domain name matter against the Libyan Embassy in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. You can see coverage of the win on Domain Name Wire and The Blog of Legal Times.
- I was quoted in the New York Times on the legality of “attack” domain names in political campaigns.
- I was quoted in USA Today on the legal issues involved in determining ownership of a Twitter account when an employment relationship ends.
- I was quoted in the August 2012 edition of Cosmopolitan Magazine in the article entitled “Survive a Naked-Pic Scandal,” discussing the (limited) legal opportunities to have online images removed.
- I appeared on Fox 5 Morning News in the DC area, discussing the legal liability of “review site” commentators.
- While not at liberty to discuss most in detail, I was pleased to assist numerous clients in coming to successful results in their legal matters.
Personally, I had the opportunity to travel to Israel and South Africa in 2012. Both trips are recommended for different reasons. Religious or not, Israel was an opportunity to see the very beginning of humanity, and the religious sites are certainly worth seeing, as well. Attending a safari in South Africa is well worth doing one time in life and Cape Town is one of the most striking cities in the world. No international traveler should be shy about putting either destination on their travel wish list.
