[ih] Defamation lawsuit brought by self-proclaimed email "inventor" settles

Is this a win or a loss for Masnick?

It looks like Ayyadurai has won. Masnick has to give him free advertising after spending a small fortune to defend his speech rights and Ayyadurai doesn't have to give up his criminal ways.

This appears to put Masnick in the same position as an artist whose work has been pirated who spends heavily in a lawsuit that fails to stop the abuse of his speech rights.
Truly a sad thing for free speech.
