Canadian Court Orders Website To Reveal Identity Data Of Anonymous Posters

"An Ontario Superior Court judge has ordered a pair of website owners to turn over identifying information about eight people being accused of defamation after posting anonymous comments. "In my view, the defendants are under an obligation to disclose all documents in their power and control," Justice Stanley Kershman said in a ruling delivered Monday to defendants Connie Wilkins-Fournier and Mark Fournier of Kingston, Ont., who run the website Free Dominion."

In this case, the Judge ordered that the website owners must provide the plaintiff with:
- Email addresses and all personal information.
- The IP addresses of their computers.
- Documents concerning the establishment and operation of the website, such as hosting agreements, billing information, and website registrant names.

I have been criticised many times on my Buckdog site for using comment moderation and not allowing comments that were clearly defamatory or libelous. Now you know why.
