In a landmark ruling, a Swiss court has fined a man for "liking" comments on Facebook accusing an animal rights activist of being a "racist" and an "anti-Semite".In the first case of its kind in Switzerland, the Zurich district court on Monday faulted a 45-year-old man for hitting the "Like" button under what the judge deemed defamatory comments on the social media site.The verdict can be appealed, but Abdelaziz said he was not sure the defendant would devote the time and resources needed to do so, pointing out that a number of the other people Kessler had sued had chosen not to fight the cases in court.
