More Woes For Perez

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton has been dropped by his hosting company, due to their fear of being added to the multiple copyright infringement lawsuits he is currently fighting. The site was dark for a few days, but is back up now on a new service, although with limited functionality and without archives. Washington Blade editor Kevin Naff takes some cheap shots at Hilton's appearance, but makes some valid points about the usage of copyrighted photos, which most bloggers (including myself) do, although Hilton's fair use defense is very thinly supported. To my mind, drawing cocaine spots on Lindsey Lohan's nostrils is not "commentary".
