Legal Issues for Bloggers

In perusing the Internet, Bibliothekia came across the Legal Resources for Bloggers put out by the Art Law Centre of Australia.

The main legal issues covered by this document are:
• Copyright
• Moral Rights
• Trademarks
• Defamation
• Right of Publicity

While a lot of the information in this Art Law Centre document involves common sense, it is still worth a look. Hopefully you will never get caught up in a legal dispute involving your blog. For information on the law for bloggers overseas see, “US Law and legal issues for bloggers which is put out by the US Electronic Frontiers Foundation.
