Teen sued by Apple gains legal help: This is good news, because I think everyone deserves good representation and I love a legal soap opera.
A lawyer specializing in freedom of speech and the Internet said Wednesday he will defend free of charge a 19-year-old publisher of a Web site facing a lawsuit over an article that revealed trade secrets about an Apple computer.
However, like the guy who got fired for his blog, I see a lot of blogs and blog personalities jumping to this guy’s defense, even before we know all the facts. Just because he did this on a blog, doesn’t mean he didn’t do something wrong or break some law.
The way the blog culture tends to react to these things, I think I could murder someone via a blog, and the entire blogosphere would immediately jump aboard the persecution train.
