Internet Entrepreneur? That Will Cost You $150,000

The case of Michelle Phan should have everybody who's ever uploaded a video to YouTube checking their content very carefully. Essentially, Ms. Phan has put a series of "how-to" videos onto YouTube and become very successful as a result. However, she's used music that a label claims she doesn't own and it wants $150,000 for every infringement it alleges.

Cambodian Civil Rights Leader Freed - Did Network Effect Help Her Cause?

Mu Sochua's arrest by Cambodian authorities on charges of insurrection was hardly the biggest international news headline in a week of war, death and destruction on front pages and throughout news feeds. Indeed, after the elected opposition Member of Parliament and five others were taken into custody after a clash in Phnom Penh's Freedom Park over the rights and wages of Cambodian garment workers, coverage was understandably scant against the horrific backdrop of Gaza and Ukraine.

Taiwan Depends On New Apple Models, Tablet Decline Shows

In November, Apple came out with its thin, light tablet the iPad Air, and a new iPad model is due in late 2014, tech media say. That leaves a year with nothing new from the Silicon Valley consumer tech icon. Some might turn their attention to Lenovo or Samsung, but not if you’re the Taiwan high-tech contracting industry. Taiwan makes 70 percent of its tablets for Apple, and the lack of an early-2014 tablet model sent shipments falling from the trees, a consultant says.

Honoring Dan Markel: Life's Lessons

On Friday, something so horrific happened that it is hard to believe: Florida State law professor and brilliant criminal law theorist Dan Markel was murdered. As posts across the Internet make clear, Dan Markel was beloved, admired, and cherished in and outside the legal community. His loss is profound and hard to capture in words. For me and for so many others, Dan is (and I use the present tense deliberately) a powerful force. His words, deeds, and friendship taught me life lessons worth honoring, sharing, and saying out loud. His children, when they come of age, will not be able to learn them from Dan, but they will learn them from all of us.
