Economy? Economia? Play the Online Game €conomia at the ECB (European Cental Bank) Website and Pretend to Be Mario Draghi

An online game for armchair quarterbacks of Europe's economy?

Take a look at this article at The Economist on Being Mario Draghi, describing €conomia, the online game of the ECB by which you can pretend to be a European central banker.

Good luck.

Nike vs Adidas Patent Infringement Injunction in Germany on Shoe as Market Chaos Looms Everywhere because of International Intellectual Property Rights Trolling in the Courts

We at LawPundit keep warning everybody out there in legal circles that a market chaos of unimaginable proportions is brewing because of the patent wars started by Apple, relying on a greedy, despicable monopolist philosophy which has now crept over into the shoe industry, where companies are now experimenting with business by injunction rather than business by markets.

See the story at Fox Business via Dow Jones Newswires in German Court Grants Nike Patent Infringement Injunction on Adidas Shoe.

If the currently ineffectual national legislatures and helpless courts do not start cleaning up the festering intellectual property rights mess which is threatening to slow down national economies to interrupted cakewalks, we are soon going to get a world economy in which every new product rollout in every large industry and in every country will first be blocked by infringement actions asking for preliminary or interim court injunctions as the "marketing tools of choice" to stifle undesired competition before it can start.
