eLawyer Law Conference 2009- Blogging & Law

(Click the poster for bigger image)

Anyone can blog. Anyone can also blog and get sued or sometimes facing the threat of being sentenced to spend years in jail.

It is however, understandable that not every blogger is well versed with the law, and therefore don’t know their rights and liabilities. Here are a few examples of which you may be able to relate to:

- Is it against the law when I link to other blogs?
– What should I do if someone claims that I have infringed his or her copyrights?
– Do I have rights to ask someone to remove the link to my blog?
– Can I use pictures found in other websites or google images?
– If I found out others have defamed me in their blogs, what should I do?

This is the reason eLawyer.com.my brings you the eLawyer Law Conference 2009, themed “Blogging and Law”. It is our sincere hope that bloggers will have the sufficient legal awareness in them that they are able to protect themselves in case of defamation claim or accusations of copyright infringements.
