#73 freedom of speech 2

I read with great interest when I entered blog ‘What’s going on?’ http://swfreedomlover.wordpress.com/2008/04/09/freedom-of-speech-under-fire/  to discover bloggers in the US can be sued by companies. This is not the first of its kind I read and know. (Can this be a hoax?…I’m just expressing my thots on that I read…)

It seems those medical blogs are most susceptible to this. I know bloggers in blogspot.com where medical doctors were sued when they expressed their doubts about certain medical issues to eventual demise of that blog.

Is this how ‘freedom of speech’ is translated? Or the netizens have no right to freedom of speech?

Can I verify: ‘Is there freedom of speech?’

Or one that applies to one country and not to another? Or are we hypocrites — wanting yet not wanting?
