Blogging and the law

Turns out there is a lot of things to watch out for!

I recently read this blog post on Steve Tobak’s blog “Train Wreck” over at CNet. Turns out there is a lot of legal liability (ouch) that can arise from posting. A most interesting source of information is the Electronic Frontier Foundation‘s Bloggers page (with a Legal Handbook to boot).

Reporters without Borders has a handbook, too: Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber-Dissidents.  (Their entry page also has links to other languages as well – this international organization is actually French).

If you value digital rights, I’d recommend a donation or two to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
