I agree that rich companies can afford the best lawyers and can also tie-up smaller companies in court for decades and effectively strangle them to death, however I reject the author using the Hogan vs Gawker legal cases as a basis for that argument because that's a logical fallacy of false equivalence. In this case, Gawker committed a string of crimes and were bankrupted by their court ordered compensation payouts.

Yes, I think you have a good point there, especially as the facts being bought to light in this case didn't seem to serve any real public interest - beyond gawking.
