The blogger wrote a harsh review of a restaurant. Said owner didn't like that the article was too high up in a google search. Judge awarded damages of the equivalent of $2000.

I don't even know what to think beyond this is all kinds of stupid. Oh and if a place like reddit, or whatever the popular social site is in France, latches onto this the owner will have regretted ever doing this.

The French are very particular about the culture of their food.

Take a look at relatively recent baguette laws, and you'll see.  I'm not joking, by the way.

I would guess it has to do more with their current issues with data collection policies and privacy that they've taken into the courtroom recently.

That's not unique. Norway has that, and I suspect most other European nations do too.

Has already happened.  This is their Google places reviews, which have been bombed with tons of 1 star reviews.  Internet justice is kind of wonderful sometimes.

I do kind of long for the days though when justice was determined by a jury instead of by a mob.   icon_cry
