"All posts are (c) their original authors" November 5, 2002 8:27 AM Subscribe
"All posts are © their original authors". That's what it says at the bottom of this page. My question: is that true, and is it true whether it says so or not? A friend who owns a mailing list has been threatened with a liable suit by a person who feels they were "defamed" in a post by a member. Is the list owner really responsible for what members post? Could Matt be sued for members rants about real people, and is there a difference (as an example) between saying "Ashcroft is an asshole" and "I think Ashcroft is an asshole"?
