A Texas judge has dismissed a lawsuit against MySpace that had blamed the popular Web site for not establishing enough safeguards to protect underage users...

Kurt Opsahl, a staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said that such rules could stifle the Internet.

"The soap box is not liable for what the speaker has said or done," he said. "These services could not exist in a world where the services were liable for what the user had done."
