Blogger Posts Studio Email Addresses Online -- Has His Own Yanked

Gerard Jones, a 63-year-old Oregonian who posted the names and email addresses of numerous studio executives, producers and agents on his website, everyonewhosanyone.com, is being sued by Universal Studios, and his email address has been yanked by his ISP, Charter Communications, owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. Jones has now filed a complaint with the California State Bar charging that Universal attorney Carolyn Hampton violated "several provisions of the Rules of Professional Conduct and the California State Bar Act" in her effort to close down Jones's website.
