Intellectual Property – Consumer Web Site – Auto Dealer Feedback – Immunity

A car dealership cannot sue a consumer Web site on which shoppers posted negative experiences for defamation and tortious interference with business expectancy; an Alexandria U.S. District Court says defendant Consumeraffairs.com Inc. has immunity from suit under the Communications Decency Act because the statements at issue came from a “separate information content provider” and defendant was merely an interactive computer service.
