This Tuesday and Thursday, 8:30-9:30pm EST, Lauren Gelman will be discussing legal protections for bloggers at State of Play Academy. Here is her description of the event:
Learn about legal protections for bloggers at State of Play Academy!
Are you a blogger worried about your liability for things others are posting on your website? Your commentors, co-bloggers, or columnists? Dean of State of Play Academy Lauren Gelman will speak for 45 minutes about the statutory and First Amendment protections for bloggers, recent cases that might affect them, and things you may need to worry about on a citizen journalism webblogging site.
Attend both sessions or just one. Tuesday’s class will focus more on First Amendment issues and Thursdays class will focus more on Copyright issues but there will be some overlap on general liability issues.
Lauren is soliciting questions from interested participants at the State of Play Academy course website (login required if you want to post; otherwise, you may just click “guest access”). If you’re interested in attending and have never been in There.com, Lauren can hook you up with a prefab avatar with voice chat enabled — just email her at gelman at Stanford dot edu, and don’t forget to test your headset before the class starts!
