Sanofi-Aventis Sued Over Web Site Threat
An AP newswire article by Greg Sandoval, via Yahoo! News:
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has sued Sanofi-Aventis Group because the French pharmaceutical giant threatened a medical news Web site that reports on one of its drugs.
Medical Week News Inc. uses the name of the drug, Acomplia, as part of the site's name, AcompliaReport.com. Sanofi, the world's third largest drug company, demanded that Medical Week stop using the name, prompting the EFF to intervene on its behalf.
