Notice the link in the 4th paragraph for Russo & Hale.

Not having a go at Dave on this, I’d be doing the same thing in his situation, but it’s interesting to see the godfather of blogging undertaking SEO on posts to hijack Google in terms of his enemies business name. Having said that, is it wise taking on lawyers of all people?
