Anonymous posters can't be anonymous, says UK court

Author: JT Smith

ZDNET.co.uk: "UK Web sites could be expected to hand over the identity of
anonymous notice board posters following a landmark ruling in the UK
involving ISP Totalise and the Motley Fool trading site.

In the court ruling, Motley Fool was denied the privilege granted to
print publications to protect sources and asked to disclose the identity
of a message board user accused of posting defamatory remarks
concerning Totalise."
