California Court Upholds Property Rights

A California court has ruled that if someone receives stolen property they must tell the owner of the property who they got it from.

That of course is not how many in the blogosphere are reporting this story. They want you to think that a big bad corporation is taking away the first amendment rights of a blogger. (who BTW is not a blogger) But the case was never about the first amendment. Nowhere in the first amendment does it give someone the right to traffic stolen property.

The case was a no brainer for people who put aside their prejudices and thought about it.

As I said months ago: Just because you claim you are a journalist does not give you the legal right to steal other people’s property.

I proved months ago, that if people drop their prejudices and stick to the facts of the case they will universally agree with the court… Some people just can’t do that.

Update: I always did like this guy.
