wow

Have y'all seen this? LMAO. BTW, Zillow has really gone to shit lately. Perhaps they need to spend more time minding the store than threatening frivolous lawsuits.

As a lawyer, the EFF's response was a thing of fucking beauty. Someone had a lot of fun composing that.

"Dear Zillow: First, not your pictures. Either the photographer's or the real estate agent's. Second, fair use exists. Look it up, shitheads, because my client's work fits ALL THREE categories. Third: even ignoring the above, you haven't proved that my client's work has affected sales of your shitty houses. So no damages for you. Finally, have half a page of footnotes from previous shitheads who have been spanked in court for pulling the same shit you're trying on. Yours faithfully."

Did they mention SLAPP in there? I can't remember.

Thanks for the link. I stumbled into this cluster-f a short distance from Branson, Missouri. It was two summers ago, and it was a train wreck to see in person. First, it's in a bowl, off the edge of a less than impressive commercial stretch of a typical rural southern highway. You know the kind, lots of billboards, Baptist churches, shady car repair places, etc.....Second, if they really were marketed as million dollar homes, their target demographic would be limited to mobile home dwelling, Trans-Am driving, powerball winners who were dreaming of getting their GED one day. Since, nobody with money and taste would of ever bought one of these. If it wasn't a scam from the start, it would of failed quickly, even if the great recession hadn't killed it. The whole valley would of made a better site for a landfill than executive level housing.

I've seen subdivisions of streets abandoned before any houses were built, but I've never seen a subdivision of houses abandoned before the street/sewer network was constructed. Weird!
