Memo to Fellow Bloggers

Your blog -- like Silvertongue Communications -- is probably a relatively harmless endeavour, but if you are blogging anonymously or engaging in any kind of online journalism, workplace whistle-blowing, or political blogging, you'll definitely want to read this document on bloggers' rights, from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).

The EFF's recently re-launched Legal Guide for Bloggers is just a basic roadmap of the legal issues you may inadvertently encounter while blogging, and a review of concepts like fair use and defamation law.
Please note that EFF documents are written from an American legal standpoint, but it is a great resource and starting point for bloggers of all nationalities.
