web 2.0 legal power 2.0

This is an education into how great the internet is sometimes … via Wil Wheaton. http://digitallife.today.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/06/12/12187665-cartoonist-turns-lawsuit-threat-into-100k-charity-fundraiser. Interesting that the lawyer guy for funnyjunk is completely out of touch with 1) how the internet works … says “I’m completely unfamiliar really with this style of responding to a legal threat — I’ve never really seen it before,” and also is completely unaware of what a douchebag he is .. “I don’t think that what I did was unreasonable,” he says … wtf? Claiming damages and stealing someone else’s work. And has the ridiculous posturing to refer to the public’s outrage as “mob psychology”. This is the way power works in the 21st century (when it works properly) the people rule, not the prevailing institutions, and not only do they not get it, they actually think that it’s wrong.
