EFF Re-Launches Legal Guide for Bloggers

Bloggers' Rights at EFFIt has been almost four years since EFF first published our Legal Guide for Bloggers to help bloggers understand their rights and, when necessary, defend their freedom of expression. In that time, blogging has become more widespread, and more and more people need a better understanding of the laws surrounding blogging. Not a day goes by in which we do not help someone with a reference to the Legal Guide.

EFF has revised and expanded the Legal Guide for 2009, with new questions and a revised layout. These FAQs are, unsurprisingly, comprised of the questions we are frequently asked. This update includes answers to questions about relatively recent phenomena, such as disemvowelling, as well as discussion of the rights of bloggers as journalists and your right to blog anonymously. If you run a blog, or just participate in comments, you're sure to find useful information in the updated Legal Guide.

EFF has also added a new Bloggers’ Rights issues page, which highlights the work we have done on our Bloggers’ Rights campaign, including links to key bloggers’ rights cases, white papers we have written, and images you can use on your site to show your support.

Spread the word and keep on blogging!
