Deceptively Slow To Update A Website?
from the patience dept
How fast do you need to update a corporate website when things change? We all have heard stories about how slow some people are to update websites — but at what point does it qualify as a legally deceptive act? According to Tech Law Advisor, an attorney is now suing his old firm for failing to remove his name from its website for nearly a year (they also didn’t remove his voicemail). He claims that it helped confuse the public and made it more difficult for him to set up his own law practice. Of course, as someone notes in the article, he probably needs to prove how damaging this actually was — and that may be difficult. So what is the legal responsibility of a firm to disassociate itself with its former employees? For smaller firms, it’s no surprise that updating a website can be slow, but it can happen at larger firms as well. For example, a few bloggers have noted that Google still has Evan Williams listed as the contact in Alexa for all Blogspot blogs, despite the fact that Williams left Google quite some time ago.
