Don Cherry Gave Me Gonorrhea, Male Prostitute. The Stigma of Cyber Slander

Lets face it. That headline would immediately draw your attention. Though, its obviously not true.
That is the atrociously frightening reality of our tabloid information driven society. Anyone can now become a casualty of our new multi-media fabrication culture.
If Glenn Closes character in the 1987 film Fatal Attraction had access to the internet, instead of butchering the rabbit she could have just slaughtered Michael Douglas reputation online.
Thats exactly what happened to Lee David Clayworth, a teacher from Vancouver. Clayworth dated a woman named Lee Ching Yan, while teaching in Malaysia several years ago. After they broke up, she started posting slanderous material about him on websites, calling him a pedophile who had sex with his students.
Clayworth sued the woman in Malaysian court; she was ordered to pay approximately $66,000 in damages. The judge also ordered Google, Yahoo and Bing to block Clayworths name from being searchable.
That was futile, because laws pertaining to cyberspace are different in each country. A Malaysian judge has about as much influence over an internet company in California as a Toronto Raptors player has on the NBA Finals.
To this day, if you put Lee David Clayworths name in a search engine, youll see slanderous pages with photos of him partially unclothed with headlines like pedophile and cheater attached.
