I’ll also add at this point, that as yet my application to join the internet police has yet to be acknowledged. I’m beginning to think they don’t exist or there is no actual establishment or vacant position. Just like the blog police, the Twitter police or the Facebook police don’t exist.
I’m not a legal expert or professional on this matter. I’ve just worked in this industry for a long time now so there are standards I’ve been around and worked to for some time. There are other things that I’ve been advised on or that are just common sense. As I said earlier, the laws you have to abide by in the real world also apply online. But if you’re ever in doubt about your legal position on something in relation to your blog, seek advice before you hit publish. Better safe than sorry and with a court judgement against you.
I’ve previously written about the legal and ethical aspects of live streaming which essentially has many of the same rules and regulations as blogging, just zero room for correction.
