My tomato looks like an alien, is it safe to eat?

Q: I recently bought tomatoes that were still on the vine and brought them home. After a few days, I noticed what looked like little worms growing out through the skin. Upon closer inspection, I realized that the seeds must have sprouted while still inside the fruit. What causes this? Is the tomato still safe to eat? A: This phenomenon is called vivipary, which translates literally to “live birth.” Seeds will often begin to germinate while still inside ripe fruit. Chemical changes occur within o...

512(f) Claim Against Robo-Notice Sender Can Proceed–Enttech v. Okularity

Okularity “represents” several photography clearinghouses. This means that Okularity’s robots scour the Internet looking for clearinghouse photos and then send automated takedown notices for alleged infringements. “Okularity waits until the notices accumulate to the point when a social media platform disables the infringer’s account before contacting the purported infringer to initiate settlement negotiations.” In this case, the target was the magazine Paper, and Okularity filed 48 takedown noti...

Atlanta Hawks 2020 Free Agency Spending Spree Thoughts

The Atlanta Hawks were arguably the most aggressive team when it came to free agency. With Trae Young being one of the up-and-coming stars in the league, Atlanta needed to make some moves. If you follow Trae on any of his social media pages, you know he wants to win. Next year, the Hawks can offer Young his max deal, but they must decide what to do with John Collins. Collins has stated he wants a max deal, but it seems like the Hawks aren’t thinking about it. Atlanta spent a lot of money and o...

Whicker: Onyeka Okongwu brings a familiar game to the Atlanta Hawks

When someone begins to describe a basketball player as “The next …”, it’s time for the mute button. Adam Morrison wasn’t the next Larry Bird. Eddy Curry wasn’t Baby Shaq. Brandon Ingram, certainly a notable player, won’t ever be Kevin Durant. And if you never heard of Johnny Neumann, you missed his failure to become Pete Maravich. The “comps” are shorthand. They usually deal in appearance, rather than essence. They also irritate the heck out of those who are being compared. But when Onyeka Okong...

Copyright Plaintiffs Can’t Figure Out What Copyrights They Own, Court Says ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This is one of several cases where major copyright owners are trying to punish Internet access providers (IAPs) for alleged infringements by their subscribers. Earlier this year, the court refused to dismiss the lawsuit in an opinion I described as “UGH.” These lawsuits against IAPs are problematic for many reasons, including the failure of 512(a), the danger of assuming that notices of claimed infringements (NOCIs) actually reflect infringing behavior, and the mismatch between the wrongdoing o...

I listened to a few songs of each band at Spotify–this genre is definitely not my kind of music. At its core, the lawsuit involves a claim that bandmates were developing songs, then the bandmates separated, after which one bandmate allegedly st...
