Privacy and the Internet. Makes for Great Drama.
Jessica Cutler, blogger and author of the book, Washingtonienne, is embroiled in a lawsuit over privacy issues. One of the men with whom Cutler enjoyed a physical relationship and subsequently blogged about the details sued her for invasion of privacy. A case of first impression (as lawyers call legal issues for which there is no other case law that establishes precedent) will set some ground rules as to whether people who keep online diaries are obligated to protect the privacy of people who are not online.
Even though Ms Cutler stated that she felt really bad for the guys who were identified in her weblog and then her book, I guess we won’t know how bad until the outcome of the lawsuit.
