Wow. My guess is that Americans don't know just how good we have it here!

Precisely, phil.  Tweets are no different than any other form of publication.  Accordingly, libel laws apply, as, apparently, in this recent headlining situation.

Additionally, other countries are generally more restrictive of speech than in the US.  British law allows for superinjunctions (similar to a gag order), preventing anyone from reporting on the subject matter under such superinjunction (such as an ongoing case).

Germany's privacy laws are so strict that convicts may have a cause of action if their names are published after they are released from custody; such was the basis of an infamous lawsuit in 2009 against Wikipedia.

The fact that retweets are being held in British courts as potentially libelous makes me wonder if merely including a hyperlink to libelous material could also be considered libelous.  This would be dangerous precedent indeed, I would think.

The social media management lesson, of course, is: thoroughly vet your material!

It's not the only thing I do to pay the bills and make a name for myself, but I appreciate the sentiment!  :)

Sue for tweets... What?

Man, what is this world coming to?

What was the suit for... defamation of character?

Perhaps we will see a specialization in law emerge from social media trends, especially given the fact that people now sue for tweets. There may be some difference in British and American law there, though.

I wish I were in a position to do so. A good and social legal mind is a terrible thing to waste. I'm sure you'll find something you like soon. :) That lawyering must get a bit boring when that's all you're doing!
