Sued On Facebook

An Australian court rules that posting on someone’s Facebook page can be used to serve legal papers. Cory Doctorow is unimpressed:

The idea that you can have legal certainty that someone’s seen your "I’m about to take away your house unless you object" notice because you stuck it somewhere, where someone has created an account under that person’s name (how many of these services ask for ID to verify your identity before setting up the account in your name?) is ridiculous.
