Blogging and the law


Although it may seem strange, when creating a blog, lawyers could be a very useful tool.

The reason for this is that by merely writing online you are committing yourself to abide by a multitude of rules and regulations, both here and abroad. What you write or post may cause harm in ways you could not have imagined, such as infringing copyrights, defaming another or intruding on privacy.

Here is more information on the seriousness of blogging.

How can lawyers help?

In the media legal sphere, certain blog lawyers are apt at dealing with problems generated by online content. They are usually specialists in IT law and will have a sound knowledge in the area of media law that your problem falls into, such as copyright infringement.

These so-called blog lawyers are rising in popularity and therefore you can easily find a specialist lawyer or one who can deal with a number of other legal queries.

Who will they work for?

Blog lawyers work for individuals and businesses alike, whether small and local or large and global. There are lawyers who are equipped to handle problems arising from overseas: a typical example could be defaming someone who lives in the US in your UK blog and having to deal with international litigation.

Whatever your legal problem there are many lawyers who are well positioned to assist.
