It’s not very difficult to start a blog these days. The last time we checked, we have bloggers who are children as young as 8 years old to grandparents as old as 80. Sure, people do know blogging is all about expressing ourselves, but do you know that you’re held responsible for what you blog and get sued or sometimes facing the threat of being sentenced to spend years in jail?

It is however, understandable that not every blogger is well versed with the law, and therefore don’t know their rights and liabilities. I’m quite sure some of us might have pondered over the following questions;

- Is it against the law when I link to other blogs?
- What should I do if someone claims that I have infringed his or her copyrights?
- Do I have rights to ask someone to remove the link to my blog?
- Can I use pictures found in other websites or google images?
- If I found out others have defamed me in their blogs, what should I do?

To shed light to our pondering, Nuffnang is proud to be an online partner of the upcoming eLawyer Law Conference 2009, themed “Blogging and Law”. Details of the upcoming conference as follow;
