Protection from Commentors
In the US, there has been a court proceeding going on that was making some people a little nervous, but finally the California Supreme Court has ruled. The ruling is in favor of publishers, as they are not to be held liable for the defamatory comments written by others.
The court said those claiming defamation could sue only the original source of the comments, not publishers or distributors, even if the distributor was an individual.
