Beware the Scottish Lawyers of Twitter

Highland Titles is a company that sells plots of land in the Highland Titles Nature Reserve at Glencoe Wood, Duror, Scotland, starting at £29.99 for one square foot. The idea is that you can then call yourself a Laird or Lady of Glencoe. You’ve seen schemes like that before, such as getting a star named after yourself or receiving a one-inch plot of land in Black Oak, Arkansas, with an album purchase. Highland Titles has a Twitter feed, which attracted the attention of one Bill Somebody, who questioned the practice of selling souvenir titles.

Well, it turns out that Bill Somebody is a conveyancer, which means a lawyer specializing in real estate transfers. He was joined in the argument by a law professor from Aberdeen University, and another Scottish lawyer. Not only that, he called in yet another Scottish lawyer who is a former President of the Law Society, and a law professor at the University of Glasgow. The arguments were going swimmingly until Highland Titles started blocking all the Scottish lawyers. They took it as a badge of honor.

Read the whole story and you, too, could be blocked by Highland Titles! -via Metafilter
