Hi-my blog is http://merovee.wordpress.com/ .
I know this may be the wrong place to post but from someone who occasionally writes on 'touchy' subjects, I would be interested if a member of staff can tell me under what circumstances they give information to the 'authorities'.
The reason for my question is I understand a WordPress.com blog based in England 'Tallbloke's Talkshop' has been the subject of a notice from the US Dept of Justice to Automattic.com requesting personal information concerning his blog . Do Automattic.com automatically comply with these types of requests or are there hurdles the authorities have to go through ? Click http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2011/12/14/tallbloke-towers-raided-many-computers-taken/ to read his story .
I am also based in Britain - is my blog under US law or British law, or both ?
Hoping a knowledgable member of staff is lurking . I realise you won't be able to comment on Tallblokes personal postion but a general reply would be appreciated . Thanks .
The blog I need help with is merovee.wordpress.com.
