SMS = hate speech?

An interesting tidbit in the news over in Germany about a guy who accidentally forwarded an SMS and got fined $2,300. He didn’t type it, he just forwarded it to one person and it landed him in court. So was it offensive? Possibly, potentially, probably to someone somewhere. Does it count as hate speech? Depends on what country you’re in. Europe is usually ahead of the curve when it comes to cyber-crime and Internet rights but we’re not there yet in North America. However it will cause a bit of debate first before it ever finds it’s way into a courtroom.
