[Insert Lawyer Joke Here]

This would have been a feel-good story. A random group of folks decides to pull together content and publish a magazine, an actual thing, in 48 hours, with the theme of \’Hustle\’. It works, and finds some pretty decent critical review.

And then CBS sues them for infringing on the brand of their 48 Hours news magazine programming.

I realize that we\’ve turned into a vulture society, where people can make a lot of money for doing absolutely nothing (c.f. Wall Street geniuses making millions by buying and selling abstract concepts) . . . but this kind of lawyering drives me batty. Since when does CBS get to own the idea of a time span of two days?
