Speakeasy Blog Shut Down?
While taking cheap shots at Speakeasy in my previews writeup (coming soon), I tried to visit Jonathan Martin’s Speakeasy update blog only to discover that it no longer existed. Wikipedia reports
Jonathan Martin’s “Speakeasy Comics Archive” (a blog dedicated to Speakeasy-related news) was shut down, presumably under “trademark infringement” litigation.
Does anyone know anything more about this? Jonathan, are you out there to comment?
If it’s true that Speakeasy legally pressured someone who was exercising free speech in commenting on their problems and troubles, that’s the most cruddy thing (in a long line) they’ve done yet. Hopefully there’s a more reasonable explanation.
