- Bloggers can be nailed for views
A 19-year-old blogger's case could forever change the ground rules of blogging. Bloggers may no longer express their uninhibited views on everything under the sun, for the Supreme Court said they may face libel and even prosecution for the blog content.
And even the comments were considered as blog content.
Between this and the Barkha Dutt thing, bloggers better watch out. If you want to be taken seriously, think about what you are writing seriously. And moderate your comments. But thats easier said than done. Cos here some bugger or the other is offended by something or the other. So what do you keep and what do you take down.
Just a thought...imagine people going through the Rediff message boards and including that as content...haan? :)
- The Godfather Wars
In many ways, the men who made The Godfather-director Francis Ford Coppola, producer Al Ruddy, Paramount executives Robert Evans and Peter Bart, and Gulf & Western boss Charles Bluhdorn-were as ruthless as the gangsters in Mario Puzo's blockbuster. After violent disputes over the casting of Marlon Brando and Al Pacino, they tangled with the real-life Mob, which didn't want the movie made at all. The author recalls how the clash of Hollywood sharks, Mafia kingpins, and cinematic geniuses shaped a Hollywood masterpiece.
- Ajmal booked for entering railway station without ticket
