    So some dupes post stuff on a website, and then sue for a pay off when the owner of the website cashes out.

    Oh...GUNNYYYY!!!!!! We're watching you!

    About justice? How about GREED? Note they didn't bat an eye while Huffpoo was private? When Ariana was bought out?

    Katie BAR THE PROVERIAL DOOR! :lol:

    I think the lawsuit is frivolous and damages would be hard to prove, but apparently the guy has had success before. His biggest mistake, however, might be naming AOL as a defendant, when they had nothing to do with Huffington Post prior to the merger. So a judge could throw it out on that basis alone. Also, what judge is going to want to be the first to put a "legal definition" on what exactly a "blogger" is, since most are anonymous? That could conceivably be challenged all the way to the Supreme Court.
