Jail for posting a negative review?

Can you believe it?  A Taiwanese food blogger was brought to trial by a restaurant owner for claiming that his food was “too salty” and that there were unsanitary conditions.  The judge decreed that she should pay the restaurant $200,000 in her own currency for lost business, do jail time and is now on probation for 2 years… thank goodness we’re in America!  Check out the story here.
