blogger beware: cyber-libel increasing

You think you can blog about how stupid your landlord is? or how the construction across the street is hazardous? or how you hate your boss?

You think you can create a "[Product/Company name] Sucks" site to get even?

Guess again.

People are getting evicted, fired, and sued for free expression on even low traffic, or no traffic, blogs.

This article mentions how companies, and who can blame them, are buying up domain names like "[Company name] Sucks" to prevent us bloggers from attacking them.
