And recently, a property management company sued someone for $50,000 for a tweet the company considered libelous.
In a connected world, every action creates equal, opposite, and even violent reactions.
I continue to see car, health and home owner insurance advertised on television, but where are the Internet, social networking insurance companies?
- Where is my blog post or tweet insurance for the time I mistakenly comment that fast food from M********* gave me this humongous culo?
- Or for when I link to a Korean site that streams Harry Potter movies?
- Or for when I snip too much of that Associated Press article?
- Or for when I copy, link, tweet, retweet, post, borrow, steal or reference anything on the Internet ever again.
Don't current events demand this type of coverage?
... But won't the existence of such insurance only increase the spread of excessive tort litigation? Crap.
