I just said something similar over on Discord, but I would like to know the financial ramifications to the company of letting the ads be leaked. I feel like they wasted money having their lawyers draw up the letter.

Honestly to me I think it helps get people more excited when it's leaked.

Don't be surprised if we see a pretty big number of ads released tomorrow (or late tonight). Stores like waiting until the 1st of the month to start promoting for BF.

Truthfully, the letter takes no time to draft. It's a pretty generic letter, they use the same format, they probably send it to multiple sites, so it takes very little effort, in the overall view of their legal expenses. A junior associate probably charged $500/hour for 1-2 hours of work. 


GO BRUINS!

I so should have followed my thoughts and become a lawyer. $500 an hour would rock. :)

 

I was about to go to school for contractual law and decided IT fit me more. Silly person I am lol.

Nah the industry isn't the same. The $500 doesn't go to you, it goes to the firm. Wal-Mart doesn't hire a local one person firm to do this type of work - they have a big boy on retainer. Even though Jr. Associates at big firms make quite a bit, you have to consider:

1. Their debt load is probably pushing 200k

2. Their quality of life is awful - billing expectations of 2000 hours per year, which means you're probably actually working 2500+. If you don't hit the numbers, you're gone.

3. Burnout is real.

 

Most people I knew lasted 2-3 years, or hopefully just enough to pay off their loans.

 

I don't recommend law school to most people, unless you can go for free to a big name school. And the next kid that tells me that "law school will provide them security" I want to sit them down and go "oh child, let's tell you some stories."


GO BRUINS!

Oh I know how it can be, my father had a law degree and in the end we ended up owning pawn shops because it made more. I was looking at contractual law (technology) or possibly sports law to work in that business. I decided tech was just a better field for me and I was able to dive right in without all the debt load of it. I REALLY wanted to be an architect and design houses and buildings but once again tech was just an easier path for me.

Yep. Team "no sleep" next week. lol 


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:
