Delfi ruling bad for modern journalism

According to the European Court of Human Rights' mid-June ruling on the Delfi case, the operators of websites are responsible for their users' offensive comments. In the liberal daily Eesti Päevaleht lawyer Karmen Turk voices doubt that this will be the end of the debate: "The online media in the 47 member states of the Council of Europe now have three options: they can continue with their comment platforms as before, they can make changes to them or they can end the 'conversation with the reader'. Former editor-in-chief of the Guardian Alan Rusbridger sees open journalism as the only way for digital media to survive. In this new form of journalism a reader-journalist dialogue takes place. … The court will hopefully soon have the opportunity to rule on a similar case and correct its judgement, because the current one raises more questions than it provides answers."
