Stop the presses! Some guy from Microsoft just bought a house!

That, at least, is how it initially feels to read BlockShopper -- a site whose new Seattle portal currently features such headlines as Senior pastor acquires Sammamish 3BD, Microsoft Corp. lawyer spends in Issaquah, and Medical couple gets 4BD in Seattle...

Among those who didn't like it was whe big law firm Jones Day, which sued BlockShopper for trademark infringement after the site ran items on real estate deals involving two of its lawyers. The firm's suit was roundly criticized by First Amendment advocates, and BlockShopper had the support of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and other groups.
