Description of this Book
Every blog post or tweet that goes out into cyberspace is subject to the laws of over 200 jurisdictions. As more than a few bloggers or tweeters have discovered, this means they can be sued in their own country, or arrested at the airport heading off to a holiday in another country. Just for writing something that wouldn't raise an eyebrow at the pub. In this handy guide, media law expert Mark Pearson explains how writers can say what they want, and keep themselves out of harm's way. In straightforward language, he explains what everyone writing online needs to know about reputation, privacy, secrets, bigotry, national security, copyright and false advertising. Whether you manage a website, host a celebrity Facebook page, tweet about a hobby, or like to try your hand at citizen journalism, you need this guide to keep safe online.
