Super Bloggable. In the past two days we have recieved this tip twice about Jose Vila being sued by Fed Ex. Here's the whole story. 1) Jose Vila launches website, FedExFurniture.com, chronicling all of his 6 original furniture designs and how to put them together yourself. "His bed, couch, desk, chairs, shelves, and dining table are all made from Fed Ex shipping boxes."...

2) Story comes out in Wired about him and how FedEx is furious: The shipping giant's lawyers have sent Avila letters demanding he take down the site he created to document his project, invoking, among other things, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (.pdf), or DMCA.

3) And then Vila reaches out to Stanford Law School for help and it starts getting blogged: Here's one tip from Stayfreemagazine.com. (Thanks, Guido & Shawn!) MGR
