You're In Glad Hands?

Handshakes are back!  Today, I am at the Amelia Island concours d'elegance, where classic cars and safe hands are very much top of mind and some of the world's best insurers of very valuable automobiles are much in evidence. 

One possibly should beware of bundling-type policies when wishing to insure a car for an agreed value.

Jamie Weiss, legal blogger for the firm Ellis & Winters LLP 's What's Fair blog writes about a classic car insurance policy that wasn't.

It's a lengthy cautionary tale to be continued, but apparently a purchaser of insurance needs to do more due diligence than simply to take ones agent's word for something.

Andres Arrieta of the Electronic Freedom Foundation has an interesting little experiment going on concerning Flock, or a homophone thereof. It's not really to do with hands, unless one thinks of the scene in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, where the treasonous animagus rat character gets a hand of chrome.

It is very much to do with trust, and online privacy.

Extending today's "hands" theme, legal bloggers William M. Hayes  and Joshua Kipnees for Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP give two thumbs down for deception in review-writing.  Apparently, rigged product reviews can be actionable false advertising.

The case in question was particularly egregious, and concerned nutritional supplements but for any influencer or creator or publicist tempted to write or solicit a deceptive review, this might be food for thought.

All the best,
