Court Dismisses Libel Claim Against eBay
from the as-it-should... dept
Back in January, we had the story of a guy who was suing eBay because someone left him negative feedback. At the time we pointed out why his claims didn’t seem to have much legal backing. Today, a court has dismissed his claims, saying that eBay is immune to such claims concerning what people post on their website, because they’re just the forum, and aren’t reviewing the material. This is exactly as it should be. When there are open forums the company providing the forums aren’t responsible for the content.
