Journal by saskboy

Here's significant media coverage following up on the progression of the lawsuit that is taking on Google, Yahoo!, bloggers, and essentially the Internet. Here's the background to this story as covered by Slashdot.

Many bloggers like Michael Geist are standing up to those who would bully political (and other) bloggers. Mark is one being sued.

S.B. kindly demonstrates how a clueless commenter can unleash a can of worms if there is a libel-chiller in the pack reading (with a lawyer on speed-dial).

If you've EVER left a comment about a Canadian on your blog, you could be sued. Scary stuff, eh? Now please leave a comment about how stupid the law is right now in Canada.
