Legal Guide for Bloggers

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has developed a legal guide for bloggers. The guide addresses a range of issues, including liability for defamation and privacy violations. As more bloggers are sued for going too far, I encourage you to check out this guide if you are a blogger. Juries have awarded verdicts up to $11.3 million against people who posted libelous and slanderous information on bulletin boards and blogs. It pays to know where the lines are.

Cara, thanks for pointing this out.In blogging we need to be aware of the same issues that we would be concerned about in writing articles or books. Excellent point to bring up.
