Of course this issue has already been settled in the courts and this farce of a law will be struck down in short order (even money  on Google getting the first injunction, 2:1 on MSN, 4:1 Yahoo and 10:1 on ASK). Eric Goldman has an excellent piece on this issue and I encourage you to visit.Good news…polygamy is still ok. Bidding on the term “Louis Vitton” not ok.  I’m sure the lawyers are giddy with anticipation.
