Innovation Trumps Litigation as CoStar Settles with RealMassive: Yet another young, innovative company getting sued by the mean monopoly on the block. CoStar's reaction announcement on newswire bordered on HILARIOUS and didn't do much to paint them as much more than disgruntled and litigious. Way to continue infringing on innovation. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/innovation-trumps-litigation-commercial-real-estate-cre-mcgilvray?trk=pulse_spock-articles

The more I read about the people involved in this lobby, the more I fear the next round of politics if we don't sit down and have a reasonable dialog locally. Never heard of this guy (thankfully) but he seems to be on a Twitter tirade today regarding his disgust with Austin voters.
