Yahoo to Google: Et tu?

"Google Faces Defamation Lawsuit in India," read a recent WSJ article. Here is a summary of the article:

A small Indian construction company is demanding Google disclose the name of a person who used its blogging service ( A blogger using the name, "Toxic Writer," criticized the Indian construction company, running afoul of local defamation laws. An Indian court ordered Google India to reveal the identity of the blogger. Google's India subsidiary removed the blog, but hasn't yet revealed the identity of the blogger.

Stay tuned... Jerry Yang and Terry Semel must be watching this with no small measure of schaedenfraude.
