Dan Campana reports on a case where an ISP fought its own customer’s attempt to block them from revealing her identity information:

A Naperville woman’s attempt to keep her Internet identity private proved to be short lived in DuPage County court.

A judge recently threw out the case after attorneys for WOW! argued Tam’s paperwork was “woefully inadequate.”
