Dial 431.322.12 For Fake


So the National Law Journal ran a short piece on page A14 of this week’s issue entitled “Urban myth takes.”  It seems that someone got it in their head to put a disclaimer on their site saying that if you are affiliated with [law enforcement, or such and such a group] then if you enter this site you will be violating Code 431.322.12 of the Internet Privacy Act . . . and you cannot threaten our ISPs [etc.]”  However there is no such Act.  But many sites copied this disclaimer.

Here’s something fun to do: use “431.322.12 [famous designer trademark]” as a Google term and you will get a nice list of websites selling knock-off (and possibly counterfeit) versions of that designer’s product.
