They say that all the really unusual news stories only happen in Florida.
Texas may begin to disagree, especially after what Judge Biery ruled in his recent decision in the case of 35 BAR AND GRILLE, LLC (plaintiffs) vs THE CITY OF SAN ANTONIO in what is officially being called the CASE OF THE ITSY BITSY TEENY WEENY BIKINI TOP v THE (MORE) ITSY BITSY TEENY WEENY PASTIE.
So a few years ago, Web Watch wrote about a woman who LOST A LAWSUIT AGAINST GIRLS GONE WILD regarding her appearance in a Girls Gone Wild video, even though she is on film saying “no, I will not do this”.
The jury said that there was “implied consent” just for Tamara Favazza being present in the bar where the filming was going on, regardless of whether she willingly removed her top on her own (which she did not do).
Web Watch has been around for quite a number of years now, having presented our faithful readers with thousands of websites, videos, news articles, and other tidbits of helpful information along the way.
And with that type of success online, we’re also subjected to having our content stolen.
It’s true — and we’ve had to file cease & desist notices to a number of websites that copied our original content and presented it as their own.
Silly rabbit – just because it’s posted on the Internet doesn’t mean that it’s free for the taking.
One question that Web Watch hears a lot from our friends is “Why do some businesses use the term THE BIG GAME or PIGSKIN PARTY, while others use the term SUPER BOWL in their promotional material?” We’ve noticed this ourselves, and are often amused at the lengths some companies go to in associating themselves as being a part of the Professional Football Championship Game without actually mentioning any of the NFL’s trademarks.
Web Watch is not a lawyer, nor are we involved/affiliated with the Super Bowl, the NFL, and its various properties – but we can certainly share some of the things that we’ve learned over the years. Take the following as helpful suggestions, but if you are planning on using any of the NFL’s trademarks yourself – you may want to check with your own legal department and/or followup with the NFL themselves for your own DOs and DONTs list.

Web Watch likes staying at hotels, especially nice ones.
The rooms are typically clean, comfortable. Staff service is friendly and they go out of their way to make us feel welcome and safe when travelling in an unfamiliar city.
One recent hotel stay even had the front desk manager give us a complimentary bottle of wine when we checked in after the “complimentary wine hour” was over. Granted, while it was drinkable wine, it wasn’t anything overly high-end. Still, the thought was there and the wine was certainly enjoyed that evening. We’ll definitely be back to that hotel again.

The 26-year-old woman sued the publishers of Girls Gone Wild, Mantra Films, for US$5 million. In the lawsuit, she claimed that she had not given consent to show her breasts to the Girls Gone Wild cameraman – the original video even has her saying “no” repeatedly. Then her top was pulled down by another patron at the bar, where the act was caught on film and later published in the GIRLS GONE WILD: SORORITY ORGY video. She didn’t know that she was in the video until one of her husband’s friends called to point it out a few years later.
