Venting on the Internet Can be dangerous…


I wonder what prompted the Coalinga Record to publish this girl’s rant? They must have questioned whether to publish it or not, knowing it would have some effect on the writer and family. This girl should have kept her pen silent, or posted privately.

Do semi-private posts, for example you need to ‘friend’ someone in Facebook to see their profile, hold the same legal weight as this girl’s public rant? See article: MySpace Diatribe Brings Death Threats.

    Newspapers can’t just steal content and publish it willy-nilly without permission.
