Be leary of Blogger.com (lack of) privacy

Somehow I missed this story, but it seems an anonymous blogger using blogger.com (owned by Google) posted pictures of a wannabe model and posted derogatory comments about her such as “psychotic,” “skank,” and “ho.”  The model  got an attorney and filed a lawsuit at which time the blogger immediately took down the site.  The New York state supreme court ruled that Blogger.com must reveal the identity of the blog owner.  Google complied with the request and the blog owner’s identify was revealed at which time the model dropped the lawsuit.

It really stinks that Google chose not to fight the request to hand over the blogger’s identity.  Just another thing to keep in mind…
