O meni:

Sem še relativno mlad (v '30 letih) inženir informatike iz Ljubljane. Teme, ki me najbolj zanimajo: dogodki po svetu (novice, politika), zgodovina, znanost (sploh vesolje)

Stran EFF in Legal Guide for Bloggers

Nekaj dni je že od tega, kar sem (spet bolj kot ne po slučaju) odkril spletno mesto EFF: http://www.eff.org (ali “Electronic Frontier Foundation”), oziroma natančneje, kar sem odkril “Legal Guide for Bloggers” dokument na njem, za katerega vam ostalim blogerjem priporočam (ker se nas blogerjev še kako tiče), da si ga preberete. Spodaj bom tako postal nekaj malega teksta iz dveh PDF dokumentov na zgoraj omenjenem spletnem mestu, seveda pa bom dodal tudi nekaj relevantnih linkov (predvsem do pasameznih strani na omenjenem spletnem mestu) in tako naprej.

Najprej torej link do dokumenta “EFF: Bloggers“: http://www.eff.org/bloggers in spodaj strnjenih par točk oz. ciljev; mislim sicer, da je veliko reči na tej strani vzetih iz CDA akta.

Bloggers can be journalists (and journalists can be bloggers)

Bloggers are entitled to free speech

Bloggers have the right to political speech

Bloggers have the right to stay anonymous

Bloggers have freedom from liability for hosting speech the same way other web hosts do

Kot drugo pa še link do dokumenta, ki nosi preprost/pomenljiv “EFF: Legal Guide for Bloggers“: http://www.eff.org/bloggers/lg (omenjenega tudi v naslovu te objave) in spet v tekstu spodaj kratek opis zadeve in nekaj ciljev. Ne prezrite tudi podpoglavij/podsekcij “Blogger Legal Liability Issues”, “Bloggers As Journalists” in “Other Legal Issues for Bloggers”.

Whether you’re a newly minted blogger or a relative old-timer, you’ve been seeing more and more stories pop up every day about bloggers getting in trouble for what they post.

Like all journalists and publishers, bloggers sometimes publish information that other people don’t want published. You might, for example, publish something that someone considers defamatory, republish an AP news story that’s under copyright, or write a lengthy piece detailing the alleged crimes of a candidate for public office.

The difference between you and the reporter at your local newspaper is that in many cases, you may not have the benefit of training or resources to help you determine whether what you’re doing is legal. And on top of that, sometimes knowing the law doesn’t help – in many cases it was written for traditional journalists, and the courts haven’t yet decided how it applies to bloggers.

But here’s the important part: None of this should stop you from blogging. Freedom of speech is the foundation of a functioning democracy, and Internet bullies shouldn’t use the law to stifle legitimate free expression. That’s why EFF created this guide, compiling a number of FAQs designed to help you understand your rights and, if necessary, defend your freedom.

To be clear, this guide isn’t a substitute for, nor does it constitute, legal advice. Only an attorney who knows the details of your particular situation can provide the kind of advice you need if you’re being threatened with a lawsuit. The goal here is to give you a basic roadmap to the legal issues you may confront as a blogger, to let you know you have rights, and to encourage you to blog freely with the knowledge that your legitimate speech is protected.

Please note that this guide applies to people living in the US. We don’t have the expertise or resources to speak to other countries’ legal traditions, but we’d like to work with those who do. If you know of a similar guide for your own jurisdiction or feel inspired to research and write one, please let us know. We can link to it here.

Čisto za konec pa vam tudi priporočam, da si zdownloadate in preberete še 20050603cdtcomments.pdf (“FEC Comments”, .pdf fajl, PDF, 332 KB) in pa NewJerseyLetter.pdf (“Open Letter Urging Withdrawal of Assembly Bills A1327 and A2623”, isto .pdf fajl, 332 KB, marec 2006) in pa da ne pozabim, obiščite tudi page “EFF: Help EFF Help You!“: http://www.eff.org/bloggers/badges, kjer si lahko zdownloadate t.i. “badge” (malo slikico) za na svoj blog.
