Cyber Monday: It's not just for Amazaon any more

Black Friday got moved back to Thanksgiving evening this year as retailers looked to get a head start on the vital Christmas shopping season.

Black Friday was followed by Small Business Saturday. This, in turn, was followed by Cyber Monday.

On Cyber Monday 2011, it looks like these providers were trying to sell stuff to lawyers for work, at work.

Is that legal?
