Anita Ramasastry On the MySpace Lawsuit

Read Anita Ramasastry's analysis of a fourteen year old girl's lawsuit against MySpace, apparently for failing to protect her against assault from a nineteen year old's attack. Does the youngster have a case? Or are MySpace, Facebook and similar sites not liable, at least not yet, for face to face encounters that go awry? Congress is considering a bill, the Deleting Online Predators Act, that would address some of the problems presented by "commercial social networking websites [and] chat rooms". Read it here.
