Google, Inc ., a Caribbean resort operator sought the identity of the sender of an e-mail criticizing the company's treatment of native Jamaicans. 17 The e-mail scrutinized the company's policy of only hiring foreigners for its senior managerial positions: "Why are poverty-stricken Jamaican taxpayers subsidizing the billion dollar tourist industry . . . '[m]aking foreign millionaires at Jamaicans' expense?' " 18 But the court rebuffed these efforts, deeming the online communication mere opinion, a rhetorical denouncement that native Jamaicans were financially supporting tourism without any return on their investment. 19 Primarily, the court considered the "broader social context" of the e-mail, reasoning that "the culture of Internet communication . . . encourag[es] a freewheeling, anything-goes writing style" unhindered by the barriers and editing process of traditional media . 20 In other words, given that anonymous, incoherent Internet posts are likely to be viewed by the reader with greater factual skepticism, courts should take into account the "tenor of the chat room or message board in which they are posted, and the language of the statements" in distinguishing libelous assertions from nonactionable opinion. 21 D.

Group C Communications, Inc ., addresses coverage for an underlying TCPA class action under a primary businessowners' liability policy and a commercial umbrella policy issued to a business categorized as "Offices-Advertising" in the policy declarations. 214 The primary policy excluded coverage for advertising injury arising out of "[a]n offense committed by an insured whose business is advertising, broadcasting, publishing or telecasting."
