Legal tips for Bloggers

A few good legal tips here for Bloggers to slip under their bookmarks, put together by the Electronic Freedom Foundation. It's talking about US law of course, but much is still applicable, particularly if your server is in the States.

I haven't seen such a thing for NZ blogging, so feel free to let me know if such a thing exists. [Hat tip Mark]

One major difference I'm aware of between the US and NZ (also applies to the UK):

The US has a defense against defamation based on sincere belief or whatever they call it that has quite wide application. The only defenses in NZ are (I think) truth, it-not-damaging-them and something (with respect to people like politicians) about how it's in the public interest for people to be allowed to speculate.

Just thought to put you on my RSS headliner - this one caught my eye.
