And I disagree with the blanket remarks about Texas earlier in the thread
Their are some sharp minds in Texas. I lived there for years and knew many of them. It is unfair to condemn an entire state just because their ruling legal system doesn't have the capacity to take on a major internet player.
I didn't think I was doing that. "Blanket" remarks mean referencing an entire section. I believe I used the word "most."
If it gets in front of a jury a slick Texas attorney can probably sway them, and they've got a few down there. Slick attorneys. They'll emphasize "loss," "lay-offs," "business destroyed," "families put on the street".
They'll stay away from terms like "entitlement" though. If it gets in front of a Texas jury, I can see it going against Google, even if it shouldn't have.
Look, It's Google's game. It's their court. It's their ball. It's their rules. If you don't like em, don't play. Don't even suit up.
I wasn't condemning Texas. Hell, I'm a southern boy. Redneck even. I love that state. Lived there for years. Their thinking is backwards sometimes though. Government. Not you.
