Study each of the following cases carefully. Briefly state the principle of law and your decision.
Liability of an Internet Service Provider Rumorville, a daily online newspaper, was part of a journalism forum on the Internet published by Fitzpatrick. Subscribers to CompuServe, an Internet service provider, had access to Rumorville. Skuttlebut was a service that distributed news and gossip about journalism. Rumorville published items about Skuttlebut that were alleged to be defamatory and untrue. Skuttlebut sued CompuServe, arguing that this Internet service provider was liable for the defamatory statements carried by the service. Will Skuttlebut be successful in a suit against CompuServe?
