A Legal Primer for Bloggers, Part 4 – Anonymity

This post continues a series dealing specifically with the legal issues that bloggers should be thinking about.  Part 4, Anonymity, is especially timely, as Indianapolis-based Butler University has recently initiated a lawsuit against an anonymous blogger for making allegedly libelous and defamatory statements about school administrators on his blog, The True BU. The story is covered in detail at Inside Higher Ed. For a nice timeline of the buildup to the Butler lawsuit, see Brad Ward’s post over at SquaredPeg.
