#310: What was the last thing you searched for online? Why were you looking for it?
The meaning of ‘subpoena’. So, for the past few months I’ve been glued to The Good Wife – I’m currently on season five, although I accidentally read a season 6 spoiler (grrr) so the sooner I catch up, the better! Since The Good Wife revolves around law firms and court rooms, people are pretty much subpoenaed left, right and centre.
Then, whilst I was swiping through today’s WordPress newsfeed, I spotted a story about Marvel subpoenaing Google over the leaking of the Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer, and rightly so. People shouldn’t be able to leak footage or information of this nature, when the team behind it no doubt put so much time, money and effort into making it’s release (and overall product) as great as it possibly can be! But, that said, it caught my eye as I actually understood and recognised the terminology… I just googled for clarification.
