The story I just read about actor James Woods, and his legal trouble on Twitter, sounds like an episode of Law and Order. I just couldn’t believe that this case didn’t hit the main press in a big way.
It’s like a great lesson in how online defamation law works. I always wondered how so many folks on the Internet got away with calling each other nasty names.
Now, I am finally learning that more and more people are taking each other to court. Warning! Be careful about what you say online about others.
It seems that James Woods previously sued a Twitter user for saying that he was a drug addict. Now he is being sued for calling someone a Nazi.
You can read more about it in Engadget. I don’t want to take any chances saying the wrong thing.
