The Associated Press reports on another case where someone wants a court to order Google to provide information on an anonymous poster. In this case, the complaint involves not just comments but a YouTube posting:

A business consultant wants a New York City court to force YouTube and owner Google to disclose who posted unauthorized videos of her and online comments that hurt her reputation.

Carla Franklin says in a legal petition filed Monday that she believes a Google user or users impugned her sexual mores in comments made under pseudonyms on a Columbia Business School website. She says someone also posted unauthorized YouTube clips of her appearing in an independent movie.
