Ralph Lauren Pays $1.6 Million In Fees For Overseas Bribery Charges!

Ralph Lauren forks over $1.6 million in bribery fines

We just can't quite conceive of Ralph Lauren bribing anyone.

He seems so wholesome and all-American!

After being charged with overseas bribery, the designer has agreed to pay the government to the tune of $1.6 million to settle the claims.

The bribes were made in Argentina between 2005 and 2009 by a company manager, and included paying customs officials about $593,000 in exchange for making it easier to import the company's goods into the country, as well as gifting government officials with the $22,500 "Ricky" handbag, among other Ralph Lauren goods.

In a move of integrity, the designer's company

Horrible. Innocent Teenager Murdered In Cold Blood And Killer Not Arrested Because Of Florida Self-Defense Law.

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersPolitik

This is absolutely horrible.

A 17-year-old teenager named Trayvon Martin was killed three weeks ago in a city north of Orlando, Florida by a neighborhood crime watch volunteer who went out of his way to shoot him - even though he was carrying nothing but a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea. However, this guy is claiming the horrific act was in self-defense - and he has NOT been arrested!

Naturally, public outry is mounting, and the lawyers for the poor kid's family are now asking the Department of Justice to intervene!

The Sanford Police Department has not released any details of their investigation, but have released the multiple 911 calls that came in after neighbors heard what was going on, and believe us when we say it is absolutely CLEAR that this was not an act done out of self-defense.

WARNING: This is extremely unsettling and not easy to listen to.

The War Is On: "Anonymous" Hackers Shut Down MPAA, Department of Justice, RIAA & Universal Music Websites

Filed under: Legal MattersTech Talk

This one is for Megaupload!

The online group protesting SOPA known as "Anonymous" has begun their retaliation against those who seek to close off the Internet by taking down major websites.

Operatives for "Anonymous" started targeting sites of contributing corporations after Megaupload was officially shut down and four people linked to the popular file sharing website were arrested. Their first target were the Department of Justice and Universal Music Group, the largest record company in the United States. Then came the downfall of RIAA and MPAA.

And this won't be the end! In fact, one member of the movement promises “more is coming” if more isn't done to stop the attack on the web.

This is about to get ugly! No doubt, these major corporations are NOT going to stand for this kind of fight. Wonder what site will be the next casualty.
