30 Bizarre Lawsuits

— April 10, 2009 — Pop Culture
Publicity stunts, random violence, internet deception, social causes, celebrity defamation, copyright piracy, petty fraud… and the list goes on.

These bizarre pieces of tabloid candy must be providing lawyers with countless hours of work and headache.

When nearly every piece of media gossip can lead to a “criminal act”, these lawsuits should soon be the subject of a YouTube or Hollywood movie. In several cases, the leading roles could be played by the celebrities themselves!

Implications - Consumers in modern society look for ways to express their opinion in all aspects of life. Products that allow for self-expression appeal to shoppers who want to stand out from the crowd.
