It’s a well-known fact among lawyers that most insurance policies don’t cover defamation, invasion of privacy, or copyright infringement claims. It’s also true that legal threats against bloggers have escalated dramatically in recent years. So what’s a blogger to do? Give up? Never!
The Media Bloggers Association has launched an education, legal advisory, and liability insurance program for bloggers. If you’re a blogger, or you’re interested in blogging, I highly suggest that you read MBA’s press release here.
But it’s not just about liability coverage. The best part is that MBA offers an online course in media law explaining the basics to bloggers and other online publishers. This is a fantastic resource for bloggers. Kudos to MBA!
