Only for long enough for the founders to sell it to Murdoch before it started its slide to oblivion.
Hold on, didnít courts uphold a ruling that allows code/plug-ins/advertising networks to tweak the look of websites (e.g. add hyperlinks and graphic advertisements)? This is what the Adware industry does. Why protect FB and not corporate websites from Adware?
In both cases they are refusing to do anything: the courts will not
1) stop users from altering pages, or
2) (as far as I can see) stop people distributing software that alters websites, or,
3) stop websites from banning users for the above.
Does anyone hear who runs a forum or other UGC site want a precedent for regulation? Do you want to have to consult a lawyer or a rule book when you ban a user?
