Cyberbullying on YouTube - an American case

An interesting discussion about a case involving cyberbullying on YouTube is available on
Slate podcast for 18 December 2009 (the best way to listen is to download it to an mp3 player; the discussion begins after 25:19 minutes). Journalists are talking about a recent American court case not directly applicable in the UK, however the podcast presents a couple of good discussion points, e.g. how far a school may be responsible for pupils' online behaviour outside its premises. The story was publicised by The Los Angeles Times. This discussion on podcast is followed by a story about another American court case dealing with sexually explicit text messages in the workplace.
