Model wins — modest — Internet victory

From the inbox: A New York model, who was slimmed on an anonymous blog, is a step closer to revealing — and suing — her heckler(s) after a judge ordered Google to hand over identity information (IP address and e-mail address), according to a CNN.com story. The model’s attorney suspects the blog’s creator, who posted terms such as “ho,” “skank,” and “psychotic” under photos of the model, is an aquaintance.

“The protection of the right to communicate anonymously must be balanced against the need to assure that those persons who choose to abuse the opportunities presented by this medium can be made to answer for such transgressions,” the judge said, quoting the Virginia decision.
