Franchisors – Don’t Delay!

“Act now, don’t delay.” That was the important lesson that a federal court recently handed down to franchisors when the court denied Noble Roman’s claim that its franchisee violated the federal Lanham Act. This decision is an important reminder to franchisors that they must be diligent in their efforts to discover violations of the franchise agreement, and to the extent they find any violations, to promptly preserve their right to pursue enforcement and damages.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Proposes Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication Rules

March 8, 2017
While there are still a number of various impediments for advancing today’s connected cars into fully autonomous vehicles, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has been at the forefront of resolving one of the major issues: vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication guidance.  Most recently, the NHTSA issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to establish a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS), No. 150, to mandate V2V communications for new light vehicles and to standardize the message and format of V2V transmissions. Ultimately, the NHTSA does not feel confident that the market will achieve such standardized communication language and protocols without such a mandate on V2V communication systems.

Mississippi Attorney General Hood Sues Google for Alleged Student-Data Mining

February 20, 2017 by Nicole R. Woods, Associate
The latest development in the feud between Google and Mississippi’s Attorney General, Jim Hood—a history that can only be described as soap-operatic—is a newly filed lawsuit by Hood against the tech giant. The tumultuous relationship began in 2014 when Hood’s office issued a lengthy subpoena to Google requesting documents and other information related to any “dangerous content” hosted on Google’s networks, under the guise of battling online illicit drug sales. However, shortly after the subpoena was served, the Sony hack occurred, which divulged vast amount of Sony data and emails to the public. Found in the hacked emails were communications that indicated that the Motion Picture Association of America was both instigating and bankrolling Hood’s subpoena in an attempt to crack down on piracy.
