I read an article at TheStarOnline this morning, "Google and blogger sued by curry fish head restaurant".
KOTA KINABALU: The director of a fish head curry restaurant which is recommended by Lonely Planet is suing a blogger and Google for defamation.
Jothys Sdn Bhd director Tharumaraj Sivaperumal filed a RM6mil civil suit at the Kota Kinabalu High Court, naming blogger Poh Huai Bin as the first defendant and California-based Google Inc as the second defendant.
The suit filed on Monday is over allegedly defamatory statements made about Jothys Fish Head Curry Restaurant here which was posted in May last year by Poh, who is originally from Sibu, Sarawak and now resides in Kuala Lumpur.

Now, the reason I bring up this article is first of all remind myself and my other blogger friends on the importance of the message and truth behind everything we posted on our blogs as blogging being a social media channel can bring positive as well as negative impact to people and events around us. I hope this case will be sorted out smoothly for all parties involved.
Have a good year ahead!
