Apple’s killjoy attorneys shatter Newsday’s fun

Newsday may be a bad newspaper with an even worse Website, but it had one funny commercial (although, as I pointed out on Sept 13, the ad’s message was anything but flattering to Newsday’s ailing print edition).

In any event, lawyers for Apple apparently forced Newsday to pull the commercial — whose punch line featured a shattering iPad.

This is “yet another classic example of lawyers needlessly sucking all the fun out of life,” observes NetworkWorld, which reports on the ad’s disappearance after it racked up several hundred thousand YouTube views in just a few days.
