    For those more interested in this case, the following link is from a guy who runs a group of people who play a computer game called EVE-Online and is wanting to sue someone for quoting him in a private forum for this fictional game.

    I think he'd be laughed out of court, assuming it even made it that far.

      Taking private material off a privately owned computer and broadcasting it on the Internet is illegal.

      Otherwise, it would be perfectly legal for me to hack into Microsoft's private computers, take some of their private financial information, and then broadcast it on CNN.com.

      I'd like to know the legal qualifications of the person who posted that uninformed answer about being "laughed out of court".

          It's all civil, go get a lawyer.

          As far as as qualifications go, Rachel is plenty qualified to give the answer she gave you.
