Universal says it’s illegal to email their employees

Universal is trying to get blogger Gerald Jones to remove his post of thousands of email addresses of employees at Universal. The legal department has had an exchange Mr. Jones. This brings the high-and-mighty Hollywood a little closer to the ground as they use the same technologies as the rest of the world but feel that they have some sort of special privileges that the rest of the world does not. What’s most amusing is this quote from the article:

… as attorney and free-speech expert Martin Garbus told Variety, “I think he’s protected; email addresses are in the public domain. If anyone took him to court, he’d probably win.”

Protected by public domain? Man. Universal bit off more than they can chew.

  • Thanks darkmoon,
    I’m going to give it a go – see if I can set up a “server” for some tunes on our web site. Trying to figure out if they need to be streaming or not. Anyway, thanks. Joel.
