British Court Ordered Social Network to Release Troll Data

A UK woman became a target of an Internet abuse campaign, and has now succeeded in her bid to have the identities of perpetrators disclosed.

The UK High Court handed down the decision saying that Facebook has to disclose the IP addresses of users responsible for abusing Nicola Brookes from Brighton. The woman told in the interview that she was targeted by online trolls after publishing a supportive message about talent show contestant Frankie Cocozza.

After she posted the message, Internet trolls started making her life miserable. Their effort included the attempts to portray Brookes as a drug dealer and pedophile. The woman claims that one Internet bully went as far as to create a fake profile in her name and started sending explicit messages to girls. Meanwhile, the others tracked her on the Internet and invaded a cooking forum to continue the abuse.

Her solicitor pointed out that the social network didn’t contest the order, but it refused to hand over the IP addresses before it got a court order, because it would have breached data protection legislation. Upon receiving a court order, Facebook immediately handed over the IP addresses and other information related to the trolls. The representatives of the social network said that there was no place for harassment on Facebook, but some malicious individuals still exist online just as they do offline.

Although the case wasn’t contested by Facebook, it was still important, because it was the first such case in the United Kingdom which could help speed up the same proceedings. Indeed, this case could serve as a precedent for future bullying or identity theft complaints. Nicola Brookes, in the meantime, now has to get one more court order so that the ISP could identify the bullies. Nevertheless, even with the Internet service providers on board, she might have a hard time trying to identify the trolls.

No avatarHmm I do not know how she can claim to have been bullied by random strangers, ok the fake account thing could class as defamation etc, but as for the claim she was bullied, serious?

Facebook has many options to allow only friends to post on your wall, she had the choice to ignore unsolicited messages from these users after the first foul message. Yet somehow she was bullied and/or harrassed...

This just cries someone looking for a payout for apparent emotional harm and suffering, heck even if she does not get a penny from the accused, she can easily goto the CICA which is probly her game from the start of it all, a quote from their site;

CICA – Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority

Great Britain has in place the oldest compensation scheme for people who suffer criminal injuries as victims of crimes, with the first version having been introduced in 1964. Based along the lines of personal injury compensation claims, the CICA compensates victims of violent crime who have suffered any:

• injury, whether that be physical or mental, as a result of being the victim of a violent crime

• possible loss of earnings that the victim may endure as a result of such criminal injury

• bereavement suffered as a result of a loved one having died as the victim of a violent crime.

Since 1996 the CICA has adopted a fixed tariff criminal injury compensation scheme as set out by parliament in the Criminal Injuries Compensation Act 1995 for those who are entitled to make a criminal injury claim.

So yeah her claim of online bullying and/or harrassment through facebook seem pretty bogus given they could not have done much asides from harrass her with messages to her account, which she could have ignored or blocked.

HiDefHQ avatar1. It started off on the X Factor page, which is open to all facebook users to comment on.
2. Copyright infringement as they used her personal pictures on the fake account.
3. the whole point of NOT blocking messages was for evidence of what was happening

New laws will make Facebook and Twitter responsible for internet trolls unless they name them

Cowardly internet ‘trolls’ who post vile abuse on Facebook and Twitter will be identified to their victims under laws unveiled today.

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke wants to strip away the cloak of anonymity which shields website users who peddle lies and vicious smears.

Internet companies will be expected to agree to rules over how to deal with libellous comments posted on their sites.

They will be told that – provided they agree to hand over the identity of the abuser to their victim – the internet company itself will be protected from legal action by the victim of abuse.

If they refuse, however, they could be hauled before the courts and fined thousands of pounds for the hateful comments, even though they were made by a visitor to their website.

Officials believe the prospect of protection from a defamation case will be enough of a ‘carrot’ for the likes of Twitter and Facebook to agree to the new regime.

It will finally help to bring to an end the injustice of victims being subject to sickening online abuse – often from those they have never met – with little chance of finding out who is responsible.

In future, they will be able to use the names and email addresses of their tormentors to bring a prosecution for libel.

There have been a string of cases of ‘trolls’ posting lies – such as making accusations of paedophilia – on social networking sites.

Last night, Mr Clarke said: ‘As the law stands, individuals can be the subject of scurrilous rumour and allegation on the web with little meaningful remedy against the person responsible.
‘Website operators are in principle liable as publishers for everything that appears on their sites, even though the content is often determined by users.

‘But most operators are not in a position to know whether the material posted is defamatory or not and very often, faced with a complaint, they will immediately remove material.

‘Our proposed approach will mean that website operators have a defence against libel as long as they identify the authors of allegedly defamatory material when requested to do so by a complainant.’
The proposals are included in the Defamation Bill, which will be debated by MPs today.

The new powers will be balanced by proposals to stop people falsely claiming critical articles are defamatory simply to get them removed.

A one-year time limit is also being introduced to stop old articles triggering new libel claims.
Another of the issues facing the new legislation is how to identify internet users who leave abuse by using a shared computer, such as in an internet cafe.

Last week, a mother who was sent death threats by so-called internet ‘trolls’ won a landmark legal case against Facebook.

Nicola Brookes was tormented for months by anonymous bullies after she left an innocent message of support for an X Factor contestant on the social networking site.

She went to police to make a complaint but claimed officers told her to go home. But the 45-year-old refused to give up and, on Friday, won a court order forcing Facebook to identify the identities of the trolls. She now hopes to bring a private prosecution against them.

The benefit of the planned law change is that a victim will no longer have to spend large sums of money dragging the case to court.

Instead, they will be able to obtain their accuser’s identity direct from the website hosting their remarks. An internet company that refuses to co-operate can still be dragged to court to reveal the details.

In the case of Mrs Brookes, the information disclosed included the bullies’ names, email addresses and their computers’ internet protocol addresses, which can be used to determine a computer’s location.

Mr Clarke said: ‘The Government wants a libel regime for the internet that makes it possible for people to protect their reputations but also ensures information online can’t be easily censored by casual threats of litigation against website operators.

‘It will be very important to ensure that these measures do not inadvertently expose genuine whistleblowers, and we are committed to getting the detail right to minimise this risk.’

The overall aim of the Defamation Bill is to end ‘libel tourism’ and protect free speech. In recent years London has become the libel capital of the world.

Critics say this is because regulations favour claimants and that the very high costs involved in defending a claim mean many publications are forced to settle out of court, even when they believe what they published was true.

In an attempt to end trivial claims, future claimants will have to show that material has caused them ‘serious harm’. And those from outside the EU will face new hurdles before they can bring a claim in London.
Journalists will also be allowed a defence against defamation where they can show the material is in the public interest.

No avatarSeriously this is all just crap since a dedicated troll can take a couple of steps (which have been listed on here many times) to hide themself, since the stupid case above is tracking the commentors via ip, how can you prove who made the comment? There could be more than one person in the household who has a facebook or twitter account, so basically you saying they should all be arrested and questioned until one person admits guilt? Or you saying innocent people should be held and questioned, even prossecuted because someone hacked their wireless network and sat outside in a car making all the racist, pedophile and vile comments they want to?

So yeah this above news article copy and paste is just bull to make it so that everyone will have to have a online ID by law, which is basically the national ID card scam all over again this time in digital form, since almost everyone in the first world uses internet, will be almost impossible to refuse a online ID to access the net. In the meantime the so called crap this is supposed to save innocent people from, will never stop since those responsible will just find other ways to mask themself and lead the police to innocent users doorsteps, only problem is, once such online ID are common place, will be almost impossible to claim you never made a comment if it is associated with your ID, even if it was hacked, you left your self logged in at net cafe by accident or someone else who has access to your pc/laptop was the culprit.

Oh and good luck making an account on sites like the Pirate bay or Extra torrent when you have to use your online ID, police will be banging on your door second you download anything associated with that account. As for all those who dload annonymously, you still comment on the torrent by saying thanks or to rate the quality/content, that will be enough evidence to convict you of downloading lol.
On a finaly note, if they do make this bill legal, I will be using it hunt down all those hacking lil chits I come across in online games, just need their IP and can use it to claim I was bullied lool, get their address or close enough there abouts, then just roam the area going door to door saying you have won a new gpu for playing call of duty mw3 and having the highest kill to death ratio, only the hacker would be sure of himself as having that and accept graciously, only the gpu will be a good pucking uppercut ahahah.
