Show Notes

Lawsuits are flying across the tech space. The first involves a company called Meta suing Meta (formerly Facebook) for trademark violation.

The company disclosed that it had been negotiating with Facebook over a peaceful settlement, but having failed to do so, they have resorted to a legal solution. eCommerce giant, Amazon is also suing Facebook group administrators for fake reviews, while Elon Musk vs Twitter has taken a new direction.

But that's not all we discussed, as we talked about Russian banning crypto, Netflix's declining subscriber numbers, and Kenya's fascination with Nigerian fintechs.
