This was a mighty busy month over at LIKELIHOOD OF CONFUSION® — the lawyer, not the blog — meaning there wasn’t as much blogging as there might otherwise be, but those who follow my twitter feed (@roncoleman) could sleep at night, assured that I knew all kinds of things that other people said, and this would make it okay. Something.
It’s a shame that in this era of micro-blogging, linking to other peoples’ blogs is all but dead. But not at LIKELIHOOD OF CONFUSION®. Here are November’s (and the last couple of days of October’s) “best of” retweets in the topical-to-this-blog category and, as always, links to the blogs where the real story is:
- @bobambrogi: Many judges use Facebook, but are split on whether they should use social media professionally

- @InternetLaw: â€œNinth Circuit Affirms Dismissal of Seattle Law Firm’s Cybersquatting Caseâ€
- @erichatheway: Protect your photo rights online …
- @UsefulArts: Keyword ads and the publicâ€™s domain in trademark law

You don’t have to thank me.
