Which ToS Have You Violated Today?

Lori Drew convicted. Possible dismissal or appeal to come. Previous discussion.

William Roper: Arrest that man!
Sir Thomas More: On what law?
Margaret More: Father, that man’s bad.
Sir Thomas More: There’s no law against that.
William Roper: There is: God’s law.
Sir Thomas More: Then God can arrest him.
William Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!
Sir Thomas More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
William Roper: Yes, I’d cut down every law in England to do that!
Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned ’round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man’s laws, not God’s! And if you cut them down, and you’re just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake!

  1. Wait.

    Drew was convicted of violating the ToS of Myspace. It has yet to be determined whether that violation was intentional or unintentional. Regardless, Drew was acquitted of the charge of violating the ToS towards a tortious act, which is the one that encompasses the bullying/suicide angle. Essentially that stuff is thrown out and now it’s all a question of whether Lori violated some Terms of Service.

    Those facts are not encompassed by the claim that ‘Lori Drew convicted’.
