Some idiot blogged defamatory comments about his lawyer and got busted for libel to the tune of $50,000. It was in the USA Today.
Banks (the lawyer), saying the postings were false, sued Milum (the blogger). And last January, Milum became the first blogger in the USA to lose a libel suit, according to the Media Law Resource Center in New York, which tracks litigation involving bloggers. Milum was ordered to pay Banks $50,000.
So, you just say whatever you like. Here's a definition of libel:
A false publication, as in writing, print, signs, or pictures, that damages a person's reputation.In other words you can't lie about someone. You can tell the truth and damage someone's reputation, but you can't lie about it.
So, gentle reader, let's be careful out there.
