More corporate intimidation

More corporate intimidation

: Apple tries to muzzle bloggers, aka citizens, aka customers. Now GM tries to strong-arm them. Glenn Reynolds notes the blogging irony: They do this just as the company’s vice-chairman starts a (well-received and well-done) blog. Right hand, meet left hand.

    There’s nothing ironic about it. GM must think that blogs are good for one thing (official corporate communications), but not good for another (unauthorized distribution of copyrighted photos).

    BTW, I’m not defending or supporting their actions. Just trying to come to a possible explanation.
