Submission + - DC Universe Online released (dcuniverseonline.com)

An anonymous reader writes: DC Universe Online has finally been released after being in development for more than two years, and after a beta testing period of just over one month. The game seems to mostly be a success with more positive points than negative. Do you think it lives up to the hype, and is the price justified? For over two years in development is the game amazing, or is it just average?

Submission + - whirlpool.net.au Founder Sued by 2Clix

An anonymous reader writes: news.com.au is reporting that the founder of the popular Australian broadband news and discussion site whirlpool.net.au, Simon Wright, is being sued by an accounting software firm 2Clix Australia. The claim centres around negative posts made in the discussion forum about 2Clix's accounting package. 2Clix is claiming that a number of the posts "relating to the Plaintiff and its software were false and malicious". A scanned copy of the Statement of Claim is available at whirlpool.net.au/img/article/2clix/soc.pdf.

I can only assume Wright is being sued as 2Clix can't identify the individual forum members. An interesting line from the SOC reads "[Wright] did not require proper verification of identity before permitting registration...". No Australian law I'm aware of requires formal verification of ID in this manner. I'm hoping that the legal system actually works for once and this case doesn't go anywhere. As Wright said: a lot hangs in the balance here. Of course if needed we can always post on overseas sites, like Slashdot for instance.
