The Zen of Anonymity
>Given: Some graffiti is on the wall.
>Question: who is `responsible' or `liable' for graffiti?
This question already has a known answer. The author of the words is
the one that is liable for them. No other parties are liable unless
they had prior knowledge; this would make them conspirators.
In libel cases specifically, if you can prove who the author was, you
can sue. If you can't, too bad. Heh, heh, heh.
I asked Mike Godwin about this specifically a few months ago. I
mention him here to give him to opportunity to correct or elaborate.
