The coming legal superstorm against bloggers - Exhibit 5

Image courtesy of

Justin Levine over at Calblog has another installment of the coming legal superstorm against the blogosphere:

Exhibit 5

The blog site in question that is currently under siege can be found here.

The lawsuit in question can be found here.

As I predicted in my original post, copyright claims are figuring much more prominently in the anti-blogging arsenal than are libel lawsuits.

Check it out here.

What we need is some quick adjudication of these issues.

A couple of interesting asides:

  1. They do not know the identity of the posters (or do they?)
  2. What are the damages? The site in question has already removed the offending photos.
  3. There is no mention of Constitutional issues in their suit.

If you want to voice your consternation with the law firm representing St. Lawrence University:
