Eric Goldman reports on a California case that holds eBay not liable for bum feedback:
This risk of liability is the dark side of the “Web 2.0” and the emphasis on “user-generated content.” It’s all fun and games until someone serves a subpoena–and when users realize that responding candidly to those seemingly innocuous requests for feedback might lead to the courthouse, we should expect to see either platitudes or silence.
Maybe he just doesn’t know what fun is.
