Goldman Sachs 666

“This website has NOT been approved by Goldman Sachs. This website provides information about Goldman Sachs to demonstrate how destructive they are to our lives and the hopes and dreams of our children.”

Apparently, that is the disclaimer required by all bloggers who attack the firm that does Gods word.

“Goldman makes peace with blogger in trademark case

Fri Jul 17, 2009 2:33pm EDT
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Goldman Sachs Group Inc has quietly reached an agreement to end a legal dispute with a blogger who will be allowed to keep running a website critical of the investment bank.

 The agreement required blogger Michael Morgan to post a disclaimer on his goldmansachs666.com website, saying it has no affiliation with the financial firm.

 Morgan, a Florida investment adviser, uses his blog — whose name combines Goldman’s name with numbers used to evoke connotations with the devil — to criticize the bank and its large profits.

The bank this week posted a 33 percent increase in quarterly earnings on blowout trading results, putting its employees on pace for big bonuses at a time when many Americans are struggling.

A Goldman attorney had sent Morgan a cease-and-desist letter in April, contending he was violating the firm’s intellectual property rights by using its trademark. Morgan then filed a complaint in federal court in Florida, seeking a ruling that he had not infringed on any trademarks.

The two sides agreed to have the litigation dismissed in court papers filed last month. The agreement was reported by The Am Law Daily legal publication.

Goldman spokeswoman Gia Moron said on Friday that “our concern about this site ceased when Mr. Morgan posted a prominent disclaimer making it clear that his site was not associated with Goldman Sachs.”
