    The laws were already laws,before facebook was around. If you get a megaphone and say the same stuff in public,you'll get fined as well.

    It has nothing to do with controlling the internet.

    Are you surprised you have to verify phone verified accounts with a phone, or are you saying you can't use a landline/google voice anymore?

    You totally can verify accounts with a landline

    Why jail him? just because he said something about a rich footballer? Anyone know the website sickipedia.org? Then you need to put every single one of those users in prison.

    I don't agree with attacking anyone for having different colour skin or a different culture than my own, but it seems to me that society now days always harps on about freedom of speech until it offends someone. Your argument about the megaphone is valid, but the same one could be used against downloading illegal copies of movies etc and almost everyone does that but wouldn't steal a DVD from a shop. I personally think the law is struggling to come to terms with the new social dynamics and ethics of the internet.

    Most of you haven't even read the article, it was not just one but a lots of racial comments. These kind of insults are the worst and there are special laws for, people forgot that world war 2 a racial war killed 50 millions people not to say other racial currents.

    I don't think WW 2 was fought solely over racial comments.

    It's an absolute joke that he got jailed. So much for freedom of speech.

    For starters, he got convicted of incitement which is total BS, he didn't incite anybody.

    I didn't like it when idiots on Facebook were praising Raoul Moat as he was going around blowing shotguns in policemans faces but I don't think it's right they should be jailed.

    You only have to look at the data to see it's a complete lottery if you go to jail or not in the UK. You can actually see the % jail sentence for each crime and it varies wildly from one county to the next which is insane if you think about it.

    edit: I am pretty sure he will be released on appeal. I'd bet my house on it.

    Also, this is a very good article summing up this crazy situation of jailing this kid, I don't normally like this newspaper but the columist is right on this occasion:

    They only got in trouble because of the Cry baby athletes they slandered with Racially motivated HATE Comments.... had these have been geared toward NORMAL people, I doubt ANYTHING would have been done...

    All I can say is, Don't post anything publicly, that you might regret LATER, under your REAL information :)

    had these people remained anonymous, they would have been safe :)

    I have recently read two different cases where FB was cited in the US as well.

    One in North Carolina a person was arrested for making a threat via FB status update and charged for something ridiculous like a threat of assualt or something.

    Also (the most ludicrous I've heard) a divorce case in which the man cheated on his wife by meeting someone over FB and the judge sent a court order for him to write an apology status update, describing what he did, every day for 30 days.

    Exactly reasons why I dont use FB. especially now that they are going to be selling off their IPO and have investors to report earnings to, you know they will be cracking down with all kinds of laws and invasion of privacy.

    If you are posting on FB you are basically a free employee providing all of their content. Delete your accounts.
