Legal guide for bloggers

If you blog, have plans to do so, or are sorting out whether to give press credentials to bloggers, read the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Legal Guide for Bloggers, which includes a guide to bloggers' legal rights, liabilities, and privacy issues. Check out the FAQ on "the reporter's privilege," which helps discern whether bloggers are covered under laws and protections for journalists. A hat tip to the National Press Club's blog for alerting us to this useful resource. EFF campaigns for bloggers' rights, and its pages also include a guide for "safe blogging," for those who wish to blog anonymously, or nearly so.
