Due to recent High Court rulings, http://bit.ly/13hkfh , we are removing the MCD stickies and allowing discussion of MCD events.
There still exists a pending court case between MCD and Boards.ie and
I would like to remind you all that it is a contempt to court to discuss any current case (MCD related or otherwise) so please do NOT do that.
Normal libel laws still apply and we will remove that which is brought to our attention as per our requirements under that ruling. Please do not libel anyone.
Thanks for your time and attention
Thanks for the update.
Excellent, that was making discussion in the music forums difficult at times.
MC who? Wut?
never noticed the stickies.
Should keep it against the rules lol
Excellent, common sense prevails with that ruling
Could someone give me a one sentence precis of that ruling?
Not really into that whole legal jargon but it's nice to see things coming together for Boards
I havent gone through the ruling, nor do i intend to, but in terms of libelling an artist promoted by MCD how will this be moderated?
If an artist performs and suck majors balls, and there is a thread in relation to this, the lilkelihood is that this artist, (not MCD) will be subject to alot of abuse.
Does this count as libel? Does this actually require moderation?
Opinion is not libel (allegedly).
