Singapore Land Authority vs. Virtual Map (streetdirectory.com)

http://www.todayonline.com/articles/156564.asp

Who do you think will win eh?

Karma? This is just a ‘sooner or later’ thing. For the past few years, Virtual Map (VM) has made the news for sueing several companies including NTUC Income for copyright infringement and all.

Some time ago, I even read some where that this guy started a small website for his business, the web designer he hired used one of streetdirectory.com’s maps on his website and this attracted the fury of VM and proceeded to demand him to pay for the damages. He’s unable to pay up and ended up ceasing the business operations before going bankrupt.

This was just like a day after SLA launched their [email protected] service so that’s probably the main reason. If SLA wins this lawsuit, streetdirectory.com’s future will be very bleak indeed.
