Forbes Highlights Peter Vogel's Intellectual Property Expertise

03.13.12

Forbes published a story about the suit Yahoo brought against Facebook alleging that the social networking site copied Yahoo's idea. Gardere Partner Peter S. Vogel, chair of the Firm's Internet, eCommerce and Technology Industry Team, was asked to comment on the subject.

"Yahoo had every right to go after Facebook this way," Mr. Vogel said. "As for the (as some would say) sleazy timing of filing the suit before Facebook's IPO, when the company is most vulnerable and most likely to settle – what of it? From its own shareholders' point of view that is good strategic planning."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
