Blog Law Blog - My New Blog
I have started a new blog: Blog Law Blog.
It is a blog about the law of blogs. Hence, "Blog Law Blog."
There is a long tradition of law blogs - i.e., blogs chasing the law. But Blog Law Blog is about the opposite transaction - the law pursuing the blogs.
People are getting sued, of course. People are also going to jail. One guy in California got his home raided by a special police joint-task force after he blogged about a mobile phone found in a bar. And a judge recused himself over a blog incident.
There are many areas of substantive law involved. The law of blogging implicates copyright law, defamation law, FTC regulation, journalist shield laws, the First Amendment, and many other doctrinal fields.
I believe that Blog Law Blog is the only blog out there specifically dedicated to the law of blogging. If you know of another, please tell me.
I've been publishing a post every weekday since late April. It turns out there's a lot of blog law to blog about. I hope many of you will find it worthwhile.

Hi. I've also been doing a blog on law regarding blogs (although I also cover some other related topics). Until recently I worked on these issues for the Media Law Resource Center (where I created their list of lawsuits against bloggers). More recently I've been working with the Berkman Center at Harvard.

How many years until there's a Law Blog Law Blog, focusing on suits, ethics charges, etc., brought against blogging lawyers?

Was a secret goal of this post & links to try to get the guinness record for the highest ratio of the word "blog" in a sentence?

Thanks for the post, I'll be sure to follow this blog and pass it around. I'm sure many bloggers don't have a clue of the legal rights they have.
