Liskula Cohen, who once graced the covers of such high-fashion magazines as Vogue and Flare, won a court order in New York that has forced Google to unmask the identity of a blogger who posted photos and derogatory comments about her.

At issue were five posts made a year ago, using Google's blogging service, on a now-defunct site named “Skanks of NYC.” Ms. Cohen, 37, claimed the blogger posted photographs and “defamatory statements concerning her appearance, hygiene and sexual conduct that are malicious and untrue.”

Her lawyer argued that she could not bring a defamation suit against the blogger unless the search-engine giant released the person's identity.

The case spotlights a new area of law where legal standards are still being worked out, said Steven Wagner, the New York-based lawyer who represented Ms. Cohen.

“People who behave poorly and defame people on the Internet will face possible repercussions,” he said in a phone interview. “This is one of a series of cases that is establishing a standard. The standard is not set yet.”

Fuck.

What is this world coming to that so many people have such insecurities that they need to try to make a point of "going after" people that say something about them.

Id call her a bitch to her face.

that's great, snooch

now back on topic

if someone posted pictures of your wife calling her a dirty whore, would you appreciate the idea that you couldn't do anything about it? i know i wouldn't.

these people think they're untouchable at the cost of the integrity of others. she just proved that they aren't.

Yeah I did, was just making a point.

People sue over everything nowadays because everyone thinks they are better than everyone else. Really who cares if someone says something about you? Is your life so important that an example must be made of a bloggers opinions/stories/thoughts because the world might cease to turn?

Some free fucking country it is when you cant say anything bad about people.

when your livelihood is based on your reputation, it is important to protect that. that's why we have libel law. you can't do it on tv, or in radio, or in newspapers. why should you be able to hide behind the anonymity of the web?

Should be able to say anything anywhere.

That is my opinion.

Whether what someone says is right or wrong they should be allowed to say it.

And if your reputation is indeed your livelyhood you can defend your position, just like many have for years and years and years.

And by the way, it was ok for media to say things about Wacko Jacko that may or may not have been true, does this mean that his children are going to be able to sue for billions?

Probably not but this has been going on for years and this is a case of someone getting pissy about it and finding some high priced big city lawyer who wants to run with it a gain a whirlwind of publicity over it.

Defamation is defamation regardless of where it's published. It's about time that bloggers were held accountable for what they write. Messageboard posters - you're next.

that's not the point snooch. big town, small town, as dann said, defamation is defamation. the law is the law. this has nothing to do with teh lawyer wanting to get big city publicity. it's about a woman who makes her living in the public eye defending her reputation in the only way she can.
