Remember back in June when Barbara Streisand filed a lawsuit against Ken Adelman for photographing her home as part of his effort to photograph the entire west coast of the US for environmental purposes? Despite the fact that it was one of many thousands of photos, shows very little detail and was taken from public airspace, Streisand claimed it violated her privacy. Well, now a judge has looked at the suit, scoffed, and tossed it out, saying that the lawsuit actually infringed on Adelman's right to free speech. Once again, this is an example of trying to hide something online - and in the process drawing a lot more attention to it. If Streisand hadn't spoken up, very few people would even know the photo existed. Now, millions do - and it's all completely legal.
