German Man Sues Wikipedia For Defamation

Is It Fair to Sue Wikipedia For Removal of Information?

I just came across an article about a German convicted murderer who is suing Wikipedia to have his name removed from the entry of the actor he is accused of killing. Because of its community edits and contributions, Wikipedia is a fascinating place. Because it's a US company, facts on Wikipedia are protected by the First Amendment right to free speech. In Germany, however, a privacy law seeks to protect the name of a person from unwanted publicity.

I'm inclined to say if it's fact, it's fair game on Wikipedia. What do you think? Should people be able to sue for the removal of information on Wikipedia?
