Posted on: September 25th, 2008 Steven Tyler Sues Anonymous
Steven Tyler of Aerosmith is suing a group of unknown bloggers for impersonating the frontman on the internet. Huh? How exactly do you sue someone who is unknown? In the lawsuit, Tyler complains that bloggers writing as Tyler provided intimate details concerning the singer’s actual life, including discussing the death of Tyler’s mother and impersonating Tyler’s girlfriend. Double huh?? How exactly does this person or persons know such intimate details? This isn’t the first time Tyler was hit by fake blogs. In 2007 Google shut it down. In 2008 Blogspot was the host of the “Fake” Tyler blogs, but those sites have since been shut down. The lawsuit accuses the unknown bloggers of “public disclosure of private facts, making false statements and misappropriation of likeness.” The suit also seeks an injunction to prevent the bloggers return in 2009. Yet again we ask, who exactly is Tyler suing?
