Too close for comfort

The announcement of a 'new' B2B online directory system called The Global Source Directory seems on the unimaginative end when it comes to naming. The press release announcing this launch quotes Jack Ma of as "not worried" but - surprise, surprise - does not mention that other Hong Kong-based, NASDAQ-listed giant of the B2B web business. Click here if you're new to the world of China B2B and don't know what I'm talking about.

If I were a lawyer involved with these businesses, I think I'd be calling in the office pencil-sharpener right about now! [One friend of mine did work for a New York law firm once that actually employed somebody whose job was to sharpen the pencils].
