If you sell yourself online, you deserve to know who the buyer is

So a German woman agrees to be auctioned off to whomever happens to log onto a particular Web site. Said woman gets pregant with one of her suitors (that’s the nice word we’ll use for them).

Since they only told her her online names (after all, to tell someone your name when you sleep with them would be too intimate, wouldn’t it?) she didn’t know who they were once she got pregnant. But she wants to know who the daddy is. So she takes the Web site to court. To our surprise, the court agrees.

The kicker? The court refused to divulge the woman’s name. To get that, you may have to sue her ISP.
