Evony Sues Blogger

Evony, LLC has filed suit against blogger Bruce Everiss "for posting defamatory and false statements online about the company" and Evony, their eponymous MMORPG. This follows indications that a lawsuit was brewing on Bruce On Games, where several posts over time have questioned various aspects of this operation, most recently a post today theorizing one of the game's mini-games may constitute illegal gambling under US law. Also, as Bruce suggested in a previous post about this situation, this lawsuit has been filed in Australia where libel is easier to prove, but where neither UK-based Bruce Everiss nor US-based Evony, LLC are actually located. Word from the complaint is: "Evony’s attorneys said Bruce Everiss’ attacks have caused significant damage to the company’s brand and the gaming experience for Evony’s users and millions of fans around the world."

to prove defamation you have to prove the defendant knowingly LIED about the so-called defamatory claims. if he believed them to be true, its not defamation. so good luck with that

This is true in countries with sane defamation laws. Australia has the most fucked up defamation laws in the world, which is why Evony chose it as the jurisdiction, even though no parties involved are based there.
