The Sunday Boston Globe of January 30, 2000 was very representative of current newspapers. In addition
to the usual mayhem, fires, weather, traffic accidents, and sports, the newspaper contained a number of
Internet related stories, all roughly on a similar topic. A page one story discussed Internet gambling. Even
though it is illegal in US, Internet gambling has merely moved offshore. Another story reported the widow
of Frank Malina, an artist, had been sued over the word "Leonardo." Malina founded an academic journal
called "Leonardo" in 1968, but a French corporation claimed trademark damages because the journal shows
up in Web searches for their site "Leonardo". Another story told people how to avoid auction scams on e-
bay and similar Web sites.
Even Miss Manners, an etiquette column, waded in. Judith Martin, its author, admonished people not to
spread idle gossip in Internet forums. She noted: "Where once people could count on mobility as a way of
escaping disapproval, cyberspace gives them nowhere to hide. [Martin 2000]"
