French Blogger Fined For Negative Review

A French judge has ordered a food blogger to pay damages of 2500 Euros for a negative review she posted about a restaurant, Il Giardino, in the trendy resort town of Cap-Ferret, after the restaurant owners sued saying the review damaged their business. Blogger Caroline Doudet's supporters raised the money to pay the fine for her and negative comments about the restaurant owners' actions seem to have backfired. More comment here from Arretsurimages (in French).
