Re: Family Sues For $18 Million Over Meme

If this trial ends in favor of the parents we'll get a precedent of suing someone for calling you stupid. Many words can be and are used pejoratively AND non pejoratively (for example, being called a liberal or conservative these days can be both ). Next, a clumsy person will sue for being called clumsy. WTF?

Re: Family Sues For $18 Million Over Meme

I dont think anyone should be able to pull a picture of a person off the internet and spread it around, associated with hurtful messages. In this day, with internet/media so important, something lkike this could ruin someones life. A photo should not be something someone can use any way they like, unless they took it and they have the permission of those in it, or its public domain. How would you like it if someone pulled a picture of your daughter and made a sexual meme, out of an innocent pic-say of her eating a banana or something, or a racist one of her eating a watermelon. Sooner or later her real name will become attached. Acquaintances and potential employers will see it.

If a picture like that existed of my daughter and people she knew avoided her because of it or if potential employers didn't hire her because of it..they're bigger dicks than the person who made it.

Re: Family Sues For $18 Million Over Meme

Seems like one of those cases where the amount shoots the filer in the foot. $18 million for using the word retard, no. $150K to $500K, maybe. People can tell the difference between genuine emotional anguish and a cash grab.

This is why if I ever have a retarded child, it will be locked up in the closet never to see the light of day.
