Canadian model gets Google to unmask a nasty blogger
Simon Avery
From Thursday's Globe and Mail
Last updated on Thursday, Aug. 20, 2009 02:55AM EDT

A Canadian model has won a landmark case against Google Inc. that could strip away some of the anonymity provided by the Web, making people who post offensive blogs, videos or tweets more responsible for their defamatory statements.

Liskula Cohen, who once graced the covers of such high-fashion magazines as Vogue and Flare, won a court order in New York that has forced Google to unmask the identity of a blogger who posted photos and derogatory comments about her.

At issue were five posts made a year ago, using Google's blogging service, on a now-defunct site named “Skanks of NYC.” Ms. Cohen, 37, claimed the blogger posted photographs and “defamatory statements concerning her appearance, hygiene and sexual conduct that are malicious and untrue.”

Her lawyer argued that she could not bring a defamation suit against the blogger unless the search-engine giant released the person's identity.

The case spotlights a new area of law where legal standards are still being worked out, said Steven Wagner, the New York-based lawyer who represented Ms. Cohen.

“People who behave poorly and defame people on the Internet will face possible repercussions,” he said in a phone interview. “This is one of a series of cases that is establishing a standard. The standard is not set yet.”

Mr. Wagner said one of the most important things in the case is that Madam Justice Joan Madden of the Supreme Court of the State of New York used established law and did not distinguish between the online and offline worlds for judging both defamation and free speech.

Google spokeswoman Tamara Micner would not comment on how Google saw the case affecting its blogging service. But in a prepared statement, she said, “We sympathize with anyone who may be the victim of cyberbullying. We also take great care to respect privacy concerns and will only provide information about a user in response to a subpoena or other court order. If content is found by a court to be defamatory, we will of course remove it immediately.”

Google handed over details about the blogger as ordered this week and Ms. Cohen learned that the person was an acquaintance of hers from the New York social scene.

In an interview with U.S. national television Wednesday, Ms. Cohen said she forgave the blogger and dismissed her as “an irrelevant person in my life.”

Mr. Wagner, however, said his client would definitely proceed with a defamation suit against the blogger.

In court filings, Ms. Cohen said she “suffered damages including personal humiliation, mental anguish and damage to her reputation and standing in the community and in her industry” as a result of the offensive postings.

Ms. Cohen began her professional modelling career at 17 after leaving Toronto and moving to Paris. She has worked for some of the top names in the fashion industry, including Armani and Versace.

She has been the victim of bullying before. In 2007, a man at a Manhattan nightclub cut her face with broken glass, requiring her to get 46 stitches and, later, plastic surgery. Her attacker was sentenced to a year in prison and three years probation.

I suspect this ruling will affect not only commenters who name themselves merely Anonymous, but also people who post under pseudonym...as "jazzolog" is. However, members can click the hyperlink to find out my legal name, my email, my address, my birth date, and my employer. What has been troublesome at NCN, and other sites that host blogs, is to check the Profile of somebody who specializes in nasty rudeness and find the real identity "hidden." Or we may find, as with the member who decided to blow my Log apart, the Profile offers no information other than a restatement of the pseudonym. The email is hidden and an address listed only as USA. What does this tell us about someone who loves to crank out insult? How damaging to a website can such a sniper be?

NCN may consist of potatoes too small for anyone to sue. The webmaster probably has gambled on that reality for years. People get fed up and leave instead...and such departures always can be rationalized and forgotten. But how healthy is such an environment?

someone sticks up for the victims of these bullies. We have so many bullies in our country that it makes life, health and relationship very difficult, especially for persons like Ms. Cohen. When someone ruins a career of a professional model, they are also creating an environment that prevents others from interacting and exchanging positive ideas about improving our society. Google and other media groups are attempting to be non-judgmental while allowing the bullies of the world and others to have free expression of their lies, deceit and often with a revenge motive while remaining anonymous.

We see this with the "R's" every day as they would rather see our country fail as long as they can get control of Congress. They have no respect for the facts or the dignity of others. Our media has become a Bully Pulpit for the racists, ignorant, cruel and vengeful creeps. Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. Bullies must be banned from NCN and the media. They are dangerous and usually hide behind an identity that doesn't exist--in more ways than they know. TRUTH=LAW

Jerry Vest is one of the treasures of NCN. There have been many but most have given up their Logs to time, tide and spammers. Jerry carries on his work here undaunted and unscathed by the surroundings. It's a tribute to his devotion, and he serves as a model for us all...and me particularly.

21 Aug 2009 @ 18:18 by a-d : Some REAL things to think about!....
All of this fretting, whining, buying licenses and permits, asking for permission and pleading with government is the fault of none other than we the people, but along the way, we've had a lot of help in that respect from Lawyers, the GOA, the NRA, AARP, ETC., and yes, our bought and paid for congressional politicians. If we had lived our lives as free sovereigns as the framers had idealistically hoped, there would be little need for all the organizations that are in the business of fighting on our behalf by hacking at the branches rather than striking the root. Ben Franklin was doubtful that the founder's experiment with self government would function successfully for very long, and as it turns out, he was right. The sad fact is that Americans epitomize the well known Johan von Goeth quotation that none are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free.


We now "voluntarily" pay more than half of our working wages in taxes for services that we often do not want, nor did we request. We pay for licenses to get married, and we are taxed for our food, our clothing, and our shelter. We fight the bureaucracy for the natural right to home-school our children, and eventually our children are taxed for the coffin and flowers purchased to bury their parents, and it goes on and on.

There's not a day goes by that I don't receive an email from some group warning me for a variety of reasons to call my congressman immediately, or to receive a plea for an out of cycle donation from another political action committee that it must receive from me in order to fight off another gun control bill. That is what Henry David Thoreau meant by hacking at the branches.


Regardless of what anyone tries to make of the few opening words of the 2nd amendment, the constitution clearly and most emphatically says---- The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. There is nothing in that simple clause that needs any interpretation by lawyers in black robes. To keep arms simply means to own and store any and all tools of personal defense, which may be at hand. According to the supreme law of our Constitutional Republic, we may possess those tools, put them in our closets, in our glove box or in our pockets--- Stash them in our purses, or hold them in our hands. To bear arms is to conceal or openly carry them and walk around anywhere we wish. There are no restrictions in the Bill of Rights on who may keep and bear arms. One only needs to be, a people. The right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental, God given, natural right, which was also written into the Preamble to the constitution. It is an all inclusive reference to the natural, God given rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Those fundamental, natural rights and freedoms include, and project a heavy burden of personal responsibility to cause no harm to another person's life or property, or to interfere with another's fundamental rights except in self defense or in defense of the Republic. The second amendment was included in the Bill of Rights in order to emphasize what was clearly understood at the time to be a fundamental, natural right to protect one's life and liberties, and especially from the abuses of a tyrannical, out of control government which the founders knew was sure to come. If or when the people decide the constitution needs amending, the rules for making such changes are spelled out in Article five. Any so-called Law, Act, Ordinance or Statute, which is determined to be contrary to the provisions of the Constitution are null and void, retroactive to the time it was signed into law, and that includes an abundance of so-called Gun Control Laws. Only a Constitutional Amendment can change the clear intent of the supreme law of the land.

An act of the legislature repugnant to the Constitution is void — Marbury v. Madison, Feb 1803.

Time and space do not permit listing all the laws, acts and statutes, which are contrary to the Constitution, but in the interest of brevity and example, the ones which have had the most devastating effect on the prosperity of our Constitutional Republic are the Federal Reserve Act and the Legal Tender Act. The reason these were passed as Acts is because the schemers knew darn well they could never wrest control of the Republic's money by way of a Constitutional amendment. Therefore, the Federal Reserve Act and the Legal Tender Act were null and void retroactive to 1913 because each Act is obviously repugnant to the Constitution.

Applying to any agent of for a license to pursue any activity which is already constitutionally lawful, and a natural right is to suggest that the government agent is sovereign over you. The activities and actions of the NRA, GOA, AARP, your congressional member, and even us, (we the people) have long ago validated and perpetuated the false assumption that Governments at every level are sovereign over the people. The Founder's clear intentions were to leave the people in charge of our own lives and that of our government---and in the ranking of sovereignty we the people are subject only to God----The federal government is dead last.

We've made a mess of things in the past 222 years of our Republic's independent history, and we don't have much time left to correct our mistakes. All of us must start now by accepting the responsibility that comes with sovereignty and freedom. We must cease the nonsense of asking our public servants for their permission to do anything which we the people have not had an active hand in approving. Until development of the Internet, we the people were totally dependent upon the controlled print, radio, and television media for all information critical to our interests and cultural values. The most damage was done to our lives and prosperity around the year 1913 when getting amendments, Laws and Acts through Congress were a breeze. In 1913, not many homes in rural America had electricity or even a battery operated radio. But today, the worm has turned because the Internet is rapidly replacing the so-called, mainstream media. Newspapers are rapidly going bankrupt and television is on the ropes. Of course, the media blame the troublesome Internet for their loss of subscribers rather than their own deficient and twisted reporting. The Internet is fast, it's convenient, and basically it's free, but the biggest advantage the Net has, by far is that it is, up to now, uncontrollable. The websites which attempt to twist or censor freedom of speech or offend one's personal values are quickley abandoned by their readers who jump to other websites, which they consider more appealing and trustworthy--- No bankruptcy filings or bailouts required, and the enemies of personal freedom are forever doomed to eventual failure.


Because of the Internet, World citizens are communicating with one another today as never before in the history of Planet Earth------ consequently; Liars, thieves, propagandists, cheaters, tyrants and scammers are being exposed everyday, and patriotic bounty hunters of many nations are hot on their tails. Let us remain focused and continue to communicate with others around the World, because we are all in this leaking boat together.

With what remains of the Constitutional Republic of these united states, let us begin to live our lives as the sovereigns we are supposed to be, not as subjects. This same redirection applies to people who happen to be employed as public servants, but who have also fallen into the misguided quagmire of obediently pleading to governments for licensed permission to engage in the natural right to earn a living, or to own a domesticated family pet, or to eat apricot kernels, to sell or drink raw milk or to keep and bear arms. We will never break free of this madness until we stop meekly asking government for permission to do a darned thing. Dr. Martin Luther King did not engage in what the media termed, civil disobedience. He simply stopped asking for permission. When we learn this valuable lesson and develop some personal backbone, then and only then will sovereign people become empowered to set rules they wish to follow in order to insure an orderly and prosperous society. Only then will we secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity.

If you decide to accept this challenge, you will likely be warned by your friends that you could be arrested and go to jail for your impudence and disobedience, and they could be correct. But if what you did is protected by the unalienable, natural right to life, liberty and the pursuit of your personal happiness, you won't stay long in jail, and the arresting officer and the jurisdiction he or she represents could face serious financial jeopardy. Many of Martin Luther King's frontline supporters went to jail many times, and some even lost their lives. Dr. King did both. The time for writing letters and phoning faceless congressional clerks is over. Don't leave this critical job for your children and your grand children. It's long past time for us to take the gloves off and fight in defense of our children's freedom.

I leave you now with this final thought--- The Constitution for the United States would have never been ratified if the Framers had not halted the ratification process long enough to include the first ten amendments, which we know as the Bill of Rights. Each and everyone of those ten amendments are based on the natural, God given, fundamental rights that sets us apart as Americans. By far, the most important of those ten amendments is the one that is often been called, The Forgotten Amendment, and that is the one, all encompassing, Ninth Amendment. To be historically precise it reads simply; The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

In the language of today the Framers may well have written the Ninth Amendment this way: The unalienable rights, which are listed herein are not all inclusive, and in no way does this enumeration place a limit on any and all all other reserved rights that further supports the People's natural entitlements to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and property.

We the people have no Constitutional rights. We have only unalienable, God given, rights, and that's all we will ever need. Everyone has the natural right to be a card carrying atheist, but when it comes to claiming these rights in one's personal defense it may be prudent to pause and give thanks to the Almighty Giver. No matter how you see it spelled---inalienable or unalienable, it simply means permanent, irrespective of what may someday happen to the Constitution.

Civil Rights are the creation of government, and what the government gives, the government can take away, but unalienable rights are a totally different matter. Everything I do from day to day is to live by the golden rule while in the pursuit of life, liberty, liberty and happiness. Governments have absolutely no power, authority or jurisdiction in the matter.

Stung by the Perfect Sting
By MAUREEN DOWD
WASHINGTON

If I read all the vile stuff about me on the Internet, I’d never come to work. I’d scamper off and live my dream of being a cocktail waitress in a militia bar in Wyoming.

If you’re written about in a nasty way, it looms much larger for you than for anyone else. Gossip goes in one ear and out the other unless you’re the subject. Then, nobody’s skin is thick enough.

“The velocity and volume on the Web are so great that nothing is forgotten and nothing is remembered,” says Leon Wieseltier, the literary editor of The New Republic. “The Internet is like closing time at a blue-collar bar in Boston. Everyone’s drunk and ugly and they’re going to pass out in a few minutes.”

Those are my people, I protested, but I knew what he meant. That’s why I was interested in the Case of the Blond Model and the Malicious Blogger.

Sooner or later, this sort of suit will end up before the Supreme Court.

It began eight months ago when Liskula Cohen, a 37-year-old model and Australian Vogue cover girl, was surprised to find herself winning a “Skankiest in NYC” award from an anonymous blogger. The online tormentor put up noxious commentary on Google’s blogger.com, calling Cohen a “skank,” a “ho” and an “old hag” who “may have been hot 10 years ago.”

Cohen says she’s “a lover, not a fighter.” But the model had stood up for herself before. In 2007, at a New York club, she tried to stop a man named Samir Dervisevic who wanted to drink from the vodka bottle on her table. He hit her in the face with the bottle and gouged a hole “the size of a quarter,” as she put it, requiring plastic surgery.

This time, she punched the virtual bully in the face, filing a defamation suit to force Google to give up the blogger’s e-mail. And she won.

“The words ‘skank,’ ‘skanky’ and ‘ho’ carry a negative implication of sexual promiscuity,” wrote Justice Joan Madden of State Supreme Court in Manhattan, rejecting the Anonymous Blogger’s assertion that blogs are a modern soapbox designed for opinions, rants and invective.

The judge cited a Virginia court decision that the Internet’s “virtually unlimited, inexpensive and almost immediate means of communication” with the masses means “the dangers of its misuse cannot be ignored. 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.”

Cyberbullies, she wrote, cannot hide “behind an illusory shield of purported First Amendment rights.”

Once she had the e-mail address, Cohen discovered whence the smears: a cafe society acquaintance named Rosemary Port, a pretty 29-year-old Fashion Institute of Technology student.

Cohen called and forgave Port, but did not get an apology. She had her lawyer, Steve Wagner, drop her defamation suit. But now Port says she’ll file a $15 million suit against Google for giving her up.

Port contends that if Cohen hadn’t sued, hardly anyone would have seen the blog. (If a skank falls in the forest and no one hears it ... ?)

But Cohen says the Internet is different than water-cooler gossip. “It’s there for the whole world to see,” she told me. “What happened to integrity? Why go out of your way solely to upset somebody else? Why can’t we all just be nice?”

She said she may become an activist, and has been e-mailing with Tina Meier, mother of Megan Meier, the 13-year-old who killed herself after getting cyberbullied by the mother of a classmate who pretended to be a teen suitor named “Josh.”

“If that woman had started a MySpace page as herself, that little girl would still be in her mother’s arms,” Cohen said.

The Internet was supposed to be the prolix paradise where there would be no more gatekeepers and everyone would finally have their say. We would express ourselves freely at any level, high or low, with no inhibitions.

Yet in this infinite realm of truth-telling, many want to hide. Who are these people prepared to tell you what they think, but not who they are? What is the mentality that lets them get in our face while wearing a mask? Shredding somebody’s character before the entire world and not being held accountable seems like the perfect sting.

Pseudonyms have a noble history. Revolutionaries in France, founding fathers and Soviet dissidents used them. The great poet Fernando Pessoa used heteronyms to write in different styles and even to review the work composed under his other names.

As Hugo Black wrote in 1960, “It is plain that anonymity has sometimes been assumed for the most constructive purposes.”

But on the Internet, it’s often less about being constructive and more about being cowardly.

26 Aug 2009 @ 23:43 by Quinty @68.9.179.161 : The Wild Wild Web
Let's hear it for the open liberty of the web!

It permits us to be ourselves. To reveal all our ugliness in all its tangled manifest ugliness. This is like going into a slum to drink. We should expect drunks, bums, and cut throats to be out there. Like it or not, we actually see who we are.

That some jerks come in and mess up the party should be expected. Of course, there are some places where we can go and expect quiet civilized conversations. But I don't think I would ask the law to interfere with all this trade. I expect to be burned when I enter these wide open spheres. I expect masked men to step out of the shadows with blades drawn who don't care about my basic rights, comfort, or opinions. That's the nature of the neighborhood I'm in. We see who we are here. Ugliness and all.

We are still in the infancy of a new technology, a wild wild west sort of place. No one, so far as I know, has truly analyzed the manner of communication here: a hybrid between speech and typing with much laxity and tolerance for basic errors. There being those who rush so quickly through their posts they don't even care if one word merges with another or if the words they type make any sense. This is the neighborhood we are in.

Want civilization? May I suggest buying John Updike's last book, "Endpoint"? Here is a quiet eloquent voice which transcends the shouting so much American culture offers today. A voice which reminds us that we have a heightened side, one worth honoring. Want the voice of the mob? The birthers and deathers and so called 2nd amendment types? The howlers and hooters and stinkers and bloviaters? Then the wide open Wild Wild Web is the place to be. Here words disappear as soon as they are typed. Do they even matter? That is yet to be seen.

...something like this: [link] , eh????  


27 Aug 2009 @ 19:50 by Quinty @68.9.179.161 : Sure
it's sane to be insane in an insane world.

It's insane to appear to be sane in such a world.

Existentially this is known as running, like a dog, in circles chasing your tail.

Is conformity a mark of insanity? Laziness? A desire to get along? I don't know. Ask a shrink. Some, though, have thought shrinks are the conformity police. Is there anything truly scientific about their speculations? Look at homosexuality. A decade ago it was considered by the profession to be a mental illness. Society changed, becoming more accepting. And the profession redefined homosexuality's status. What's scientific about that?

Wherever we look we see madness. Or is it stupidity? Stupidity and madness at times can't be distinguished since they appear so much the same.

We are all human. (Hey! Now that's a thought!) But we don't know yet how to deal with our own humanity. Nuts today, sane tomorrow. Foolish today, wise tomorrow. Foolish again. Look in the mirror. Who has all the answers? Any of the answers? A answer?

See, my little fingers have been merrily typing away here. Just throwing out thoughts. Some may stick to the wall. Some will simply fall. Many may not be worth picking up. Or I am such a profound and lofty genius that my transcendence will shine in the west with the evening star, beating the sun in the east as it rises. A great light unto the world.

Now was that nuts? Or merely fanciful? Or a simple flight, a pop of the imagination, a bubble, effervescent, fleeting, fun.

Fun for fun's sake I say. Type away. Though none of us have to read any of this stuff. And perhaps you're right.........

Now, where's my beer. Whoops, forgot what bar I'm in.

Does that answer your question?

Everyone has their favorite way of using the internet. Many of us search to find what we want, click in to a specific website, read what’s available and click out. That’s not necessarily a bad thing because it’s efficient. We learn to tune out things we don’t need and go straight for what’s essential.

Hey Jazzy,
Aren't you getting tired of having to continually check for spam on your log? Think of all the time you are spending on this spam. And what I find funny is that these spammers have to put in the verification code in order to post the spam. Evidently spammers are willing to spend the extra time. Too bad Ming hasn't figured out a better system. The new site he has been promising for YEARS has not....oh never mind.  



8 Feb 2010 @ 14:08 by jazzolog : It Reminds Me Of WWII
No, I don't mean fighting all the time...although--- Oh never mind 2. I mean the nostalgia factor of when Spam was cheap and we ate it every other day, rationing being how it was. Anyway, I think it's a machine...and I guess cheap advertising.  


8 Feb 2010 @ 16:19 by Mr. Morris @74.177.149.97 : spam
Maybe you ate spam every other day but not me. Goes back to the days as a girl when I was suppose to watch my little sister after her bath. Well of course that didn't happen and my sisiter sat in a mud puddle and my mom got annoyed with me and in the process burned the spam for dinner. After that I informed mom I was never eating spam again and kept my word!  


14 Feb 2010 @ 12:32 by jazzolog : Mr. Morris' Rage Transference
I think it's unfortunate Spam gets the blame for this. What if your sister had tossed the teddy bear in the puddle---face down? and Mom had yelled at her? Would Spam get eaten everyday then?  


29 Oct 2010 @ 05:12 by vaxen : A fitting end...
for a proxy human. All hallows should see you weeping for the ghouls of yesteryear and the fretted wind so plaintedly pining...

But, then, density as pliant as yours was never as trance-parented as it is today with the death of your false liberator & the end of your pseudo democracy.

So be it... Think Bule, Count Two....

I heard from Martha recently that Mr. Morris had perished in a climate change event where they have been living the past couple years. I'm sure most of the old-timers will join in the grieving.

(Others, of course, who beat women and dead horses, may want to add teddy bears to the fun. Must be a new party to the right of the tea bag.)

I lay bare some insight or understanding for NCN newcomers. My take on the issue here. Put in simple terms, Jazzolog tried to usurp NCN and failed.

And now Jazzolog still hopes his svengali rhetoric might create effect.

Historical observation shows a methodology that everywhere the colonizers go they undermine, usurp, and render impotent. I am grateful that NCN has not been usurped by the usual suspects and gatekeepers. Long live the dandelions!

OK I'm off now to enjoy my new life. Oh by the way Jazzy I know you are working hard to find truthful politicans (an oxymoron) but I do believe that there is the rare one out there somewhere...over a rainbow.

Good luck.

My name is Drum Robot.

Actually, my name; Mike Smith - has been listed on my profile for many years now.

My first news log entry, my first post, the day I joined this website, Jazzolog was one of the first to comment...and Jazzolog, keeping the gatekeeper tradition alive, he did ridiculed me for my profile was set to private.

"18 Dec 2007 @ 16:26 by jazzolog : Looking Hard
at a Hidden Profile."

Alas to satisfy the gatekeeper, I immediately reset my profile to viewable.

The most staggering thing about today's superior man is that they're so far removed they don't know they worship Aristotle. When dead folks speak, unless their ancestral, of course, they're not dignified an answer. On the other hand, the charlatan above, Martha aka Snoopy, penned a dead mans name- blatant bad character and down right nasty. The most staggering thing about bad character is that bad character abounds with irony e.g. my birth name is indeed Mike Smith as listed on my profile.

Gees Martha, thank you for clarifying that.

I am just weed in the crack of the sidewalk of establishment. And the establishment is reluctantly dying. The good news, the establishment is dying. Long live the faceless, voiceless, outcast renegades. Long live the dandelions!
