Conde Nast Files John Doe Infringement Lawsuit

From the ABA Journal and Online Media Daily, news that Conde Nast has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against John Does who got hold of unpublished material and posted it on the FashionZag blog. Conde Nast succeeded in getting the material taken down, but Conde Nast alleges that the Does apparently then reposted the material on bayimg.com. Much of the material was from the December issue of GQ, Vogue, and other magazines. A district court judge is allowing Conde Nast to subpoena internet providers that host the sites. Here's a link to the Conde Nast complaint.
