BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Bill Murray, Doobie Brothers play a round over golf shirts

Bill Murray

The actor Bill Murray and the Doobie Brothers are in a legal feud over the actor’s golf apparel company’s use of a song without permission. And it’s getting ugly…  in a funny way, according to legal letters that posted to Twitter over the weekend.


The Doobie Brothers’ lawyers on Wednesday sent a warning letter to Mr. Murray’s company, William Murray Golf, over its using the band’s classic song “Listen to the Music” in its advertisements, without compensation.


“It’s a fine song,” the letter reads. “I know you agree because you keep using it in ads for your Zero Hucks Given golf shirts. …However, given that you haven’t paid to use it, maybe you should change the company name to ‘Zero Bucks Given.’”


Then came the response from Mr. Murray’s legal team: “First, I would like to compliment you on finding levity in the law at a time when the world and this country certainly could use a laugh… We would also like to confirm that both our firm, and the good folks at William Murray Golf, are indeed fans of the Doobie Brothers’ music, which is why we appreciate your firm’s choice of ‘Takin’ It to the Streets,’ rather than to the courts, which are already overburdened ‘Minute by Minute’ with real problems.


“Please provide us with the shirt size for yourself, Tom Johnston, Patrick Simmons, Michael McDonald, and John McFee, along with which of our client’s shirts you find the least offensive, and we will happily upgrade your wardrobes and hopefully win each of you over as new fans of the brand.”
