Internet Harassment

Those who publish private information about an individual in areas of the Internet that are known hang-outs for criminals can be responsible for any damages against that individual.  For example, if someone finds a user’s home address and posts it on a forum populated by known sex offenders, the user then has an instant case against that poster for harassment.

Harassment is defined as the repeated, unwanted contact from a person or group of people.  Many netizens falsely believe that if they form a conspiracy against any individual and they get all 100 people to call that person one time, then they are not committing harassment.

Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress

The tort of Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress (IIED) has been used successfully in many web cases, but it is often misunderstood.  Sure, an obnoxious e-mail may make the recipient angry, or a threatening message board post may cause them to lose sleep at night, but the level of emotional distress must be very serious for one to win a lawsuit.

In most cases, the emotional distress must be so severe as to require psychological or psychiatric treatment.
