Killjoy attorneys for the New York Times who are most likely paid many times more per hour than New York Times reporters asked Twitter to nix the “Times Is On It” Twitter account, which parodies NYT stories and is loved by many. Poynter.org is on it. A NYT spokesperson tells Poynter they were protecting the NYT trademark, not its copyright.

    I suppose NYT needs to add parody to their recent list of 

    Things You Can’t Say On The Internet.

    That’s pretty lame if it’s “The Times is on it”. The London Times etc. might have something to say about that trademark argument
