A legal guide for bloggers
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has published a Legal Guide for Bloggers that looks to be a useful resource. The EFF calls it a "basic roadmap to legal issues you may confront as a blogger." (And reminds us that the guide is not a substitute for legal advice.) The FAQ on bloggers and intellectual property rights is particularly helpful. It covers fair use and copyright: i.e. including short quotations in your blog from another blogger is fine. As is including thumbnail GIFs like the cover above. There are sections on privacy and on bloggers as journalists. "Coming soon" is a section on labor law or blogging in the workplace. Thanks to Italian blog Blogs4Biz.info for the link.
