I just recieved an online minute from Media Post reporting that the NYC ad agency suing Maine blogger, Lance Dutson, has withdrawn its lawsuit. Media Post also implies in this article that the agency has gone out of business as a result. The headline, “Puzzling Lawsuit Brings Down Agency,” seems to suggest this, along with the following statement:
“Warner Kremer Paino Advertising, the ad agency that last month filed a puzzling lawsuit against a blogger for having criticized the agency’s online ad efforts, has folded.”
I am curious if this is a reference to the demise of the lawsuit or of the agency. Does anyone know for sure?
If this is true it should be even more of an eye-opener to those who don’t take blogging seriously.
