Bird Scooter tried to censor my Boing Boing post with a legal threat that's so stupid, it's a whole new kind of wrong


#21

I’m fine with eider.


#22

I’m surprised the EFF didn’t cite Arkell v. Pressdram, too…


#23

Now the puns are bringing me down.


#24

Do you think you can… take these broken wings, and learn to fly again?


#25

You missed a two-fer - “I’m down with eider”


#26

Damn. You could knock me over with a feather.


#27

That there is only one post talking about the cease and desist is a real flight of fancy.

Duck it, I’m out…

That’s a bit much to swallow.


#30

I believe you are referring to Larkell v Crestdram?


#31

Since it’s not yet been said: Christ, what assholes.


#32

I would say its about flipping the Bird but it looks like Bird is flipping out here.


#33

Just make them aware that a connected dildo has better security than their scooters.


#34

Yeah, they really fowled up this time, somebody oughta flip them the bird!


#35

I think it’s justice enough that the dodos will need to foot the bill for their frivolous threats.

#37

I’m getting a hawkward feeling about them.


#38

Relax, we’re just falcon around.


#39

The original post was a reblog from JWZ - do we know if he get a similar bogus legal threat and is getting assistance from the EFF?

Listen, this letter may seem flighty, but the next one could come from a real legal eagle. Speech issues like this are really a canary in the coal mine. We can only hope it rolls like water off their backs and the strategy isn’t to peck BB to death with threats like this.

This is the time that websites need to flock together to ensure that the threat doesn’t migrate from letters to legal action. Also, uhhh, something about beaks.
