Roby Brock‘s Talk Business Quarterly is being sued by Jon Kennedy, a graphic designer who did some work for TBQ until their ageement ended in Dec. 2009. According to Kennedy, Brock continued to use copyrighted designs after Kennedy’s departure. Arkansas Business has more details.

UPDATE: I just spoke with Roby Brock. He says he’s hesitant to comment until he’s spoken with his lawyer, but he does say they are preparing to file a counter claim. Jason Tolbert, of the Tolbert Report, came to the defense of Brock via Twitter, insinuating the suit against Brock had “no merit.” An interesting back and forth ensued between Tolbert (@TolbertReport) and Arkansas Business and Publishing Group President Jeff Hankins (@JeffHankins).
