Some people just don’t get it!

Again, two posts read today are leading me to a post …

Eric, the man behind the news aggregation website Fuzz and the Presse-Citron blog is being assigned in Court by a Star who is claiming that a link (not an article, a link) pointing to an article, and posted automatically, by RSS, on Fuzz, and which was buried in several thousands of other such links, was an intrusion in his private life! The Star, who’s probably worth several billion euros, is asking for 35.000 euros. Oh, did Imention that the Star didn’t even first ask Eric to delete the link?!?

The French speaking Blogosphere is rallying behind Eric, and from the various comments I’ve read, he’s probably in a good position to win in court.

The second story was posted on the Wikinomics blog, and is letting us know about a state representative in Kentucky who filed a state legislation that would make anonymous comments made online illegal, and also about a request made by the Indian government that RIM allows them to intercept messages sent by Blackberries in matters of national security!

As I said, there are still many people out there who do not have a clue about what the Internet is …

  1. Crazy story. I’m also in the process of relaying the info on my Blog brand new blog. Despite knowing that the trafic I get on it today is probably less that the number of crocodiles in Belgium 🙂 But Buzz is buzz.
