Indeed we can! And in honor of living in a country where we have rights rather than vaguely suggested privileges:
Defamation Poem, by Jan Böhmermann
Stupid as fuck, cowardly and uptight, Is Erdogan, the president, His gob smells of bad döner, Even a pig’s fart smells better, He’s the man who hits girls, While wearing a rubber mask, But goat-fucking he likes the best, And having minorities repressed,
Kicking Kurds, Beating Christians, While watching kiddie porn, And even at night, instead of sleep, It’s time for fellatio with a hundred sheep,
Yep, Erdogan is definitely The president with a tiny dick, Every Turk will tell you all, The stupid fool has wrinkly balls, From Ankara to Istanbul, They all know the man is gay, Perverted, louse-infested, a zoophile, Recep Fritzl Priklopil
Head as empty as his balls, Of every gang-bang party he’s the star, Till his cock burns when he has a piss, That’s Recep Erdogan, The Turkish president.
By the standards of evidence the police were operating on, I could make up a "tip" that techdirt is a child pornography ring and that you are sharing illegal photographs.
Whether it's true or not is irrelevant. The agency I give that tip to then has exactly the amount of evidence of wrongdoing that the police officers in this case had. And the fact that the site has 'frequent' visitors is all the proof the police need of wrongdoing under this new evidence standard.
Do you really want to have a group of armed police kicking your door in 'for the children'? Remember, they won't stop tearing your house apart until they find the evidence they KNOW is there -- after all, there was a tip that said so!
That of course assumes you're still alive, because police are kinda trigger-happy these days.
Well, except for the fact that federal courts have ruled that extending a traffic stop to bring in a dog for a sniff is unconstitutional -- so shipping luggage hundreds of miles away for a dog sniff after a local judge found there was insufficient justification for a search warrant would be even less likely to pass.
Person A writes a review of something, and transfers ownership of the rights to that review to Review Site B.
Person C considers that review defamatory so they sue Person A, and either Person A is never informed of the lawsuit, the lawsuit is in a court that lacks jurisdiction or Person A just doesn't bother to show up -- resulting in a default judgment. But Review Site B was not named in the lawsuit, and is not a party to it in any way.
So how can the court seize B's property and give it to C, when it was A who lost the lawsuit and A does not own the property that is to be seized?
It seems to me that there is enormous potential for abuse there if it's a valid court order. Go out and sue your next door neighbor, win, and demand the court award Disney's ownership of Star Wars to you? How on Earth could that possibly be valid?
