Minor Memos Google.pl

Sigh...cybersquatting: it seems like so long ago. Unless you're a Polish poet, in which case Google may be suing your "Grupa Mlodych Artystow i Literatow" (Group of Young Artists and Writers, apparently) on the grounds that your group's domain name, gmail.pl, is evil I mean organizes the world's information in a way Google doesn't like I mean violates Google's intellectual property. See more detailed coverage via "Guradian", AFP, and Raw Story.

Here's hoping that this "GMAIL" is a waggish lot intent on playing out some very meta commentary on relations between the "ex-East" and the "ex(?)-West."
