In other words, “Lube for the schlong but not so much for the cooch” (my words) is discriminatory and wrong, but it seems to approximate to the advertising policy on Facebook regarding adult products or services. The Center for Intimacy Justice cries foul.

Applicable to sauce with a different meaning (though, I will not get around to hooch), divorce and family law specialist and very fine blogger, Kirk C. Stange Esquire of the Stange LawFirm PC counsels lawyers on how to get social media likes and follows.

Saucy e-book pirates bite the dust in court.
Ukraine is home to the saucy e-book pirating site KISS LIBRARY, which was sued by Amazon, PRH, and Authors Guild on behalf of 12 authors in 2020 for pirating e-books at discounted prices under Kissly.net, Libly.net, Cheap-Library.com, and other domain names. The court recently awarded 7.8 million in statutory damages to the plaintiffs.
Let’s hope Ukraine makes sure that the damages are paid promptly, and that their pirate sites are shut down.
Speaking of money, January is the time to send out 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC.
Authors, if in the course of your business you paid your webmaster or webmistress (whom I suppose the new, Microsoft Officious app may now suggest we now call webexpert and weblover ) $600 or more, you need to fill out a 1099-NEC. Copy A must go to the IRS with a filing form 1096. Copy B must go to the webexpert or weblover.

Incorporated businesses usually do not need 1099-NECs. PCs, LLCs, and individuals do.

Original forms are free from the IRS, and also from some public libraries. If you have fewer than 10 forms, and do not own a typewriter or file-online account, you may use handwriting as long as you remember to use block printing, in black ink, and do not run over the outlines of the boxes on the forms.
All the best,
