YELP Forced to Identify Anonymous Users; Elite to Launch “World Post” Online Publication

This will be short and sweet. This morning I ran across two headlines that I felt were important to share:

1) YELP critics must be identified, court rules in online landscape altering decision

I’ll write a longer article at some point about privacy and the Internet, but this ruling is bad news for individuals as well as content providers.
