    Privacy and Anonymity at Risk in New York Conspiracy Suit

    New York - The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) this
    week served a motion to quash dragnet subpoenas that put
    privacy and anonymity at risk for the operators of dozens of
    Internet blogs and potentially hundreds of commenters.

    The subpoenas stem from a state lawsuit filed by New York
    residents Miriam and Michael Hersh alleging a conspiracy to
    interfere with their business interests. Issued to Google
    and Yahoo, the subpoenas demand the identities of users of
    ten email accounts, operators of 30 blogs and a website that
    had featured discussions of the plaintiffs among other
    matters, and the identities of everyone who had ever
    commented on those sites.
