In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.
Explaining, the judge says it is possible that Donegan created the entry herself. The judge believes that Elliott should be able to explore whether the entry was fabricated. Accordingly, discovery proceeds, which will now put pressure on Google to respond to broad subpoena demands. The next motion stage could feature a high-stakes one about the reaches of CDA 230.
Mindless Diversion Bait : ‘Indie Game’ Trailer
I think I’m the only contributor at the League that isn’t a gamer. Given a few hours on a Saturday evening, there are approximately 1,000 things I would choose to do before sitting down with an X-Box for the night. And yet this new documentary, Indie Game, looks unbelievably awesome:
One of the reasons gaming disinterests me is that unlike other medium, such as books, film or music, it always seems to lack what I might call a “human presence:” All is light plot to set up action – though it is quite often well done in dazzlingly beautiful ways. But there is nothing in a video game that reveals to me anything about either myself or the creator that made it. Indie Game seems like a great way for me to bridge that gap.
Being a non-gamer, it’s interesting that my favorite documentary of all time is The King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters. If Indie Game movie is anywhere as awesome as the trailer makes it look, a double feature with both should be required in every art movie house in the Western world.
