Tonight, the Ebig.org blogging SIG met at its new location at the University of Phoenix in Concord, California. Charles Smith, Chief Legal Council at Fastlane Ventures gave an excellent presentation on the legal implications of blogging - what you should know before putting fingers to the keyboard.
You can check out my notes and Eric Rice’s notes, too.
Biggest takeaways for me:
1) Employers should develop specific blogging policies
2) Employees need to use more common sense when posting.
(Disclaimer: These notes and this presentation do not constitute legal advice. You should consult a lawyer for legal advice. The views expressed by Charles Smith do not reflect the views of me or Tennant Consulting or its sponsors or clients.) (As you can see, I learned the importance of disclaimers)

Overall, this was an excellent session. Thanks to the speaker, Charles Smith, for his work and a great overview. And thanks to Bill Flitter for putting it on, and to the sponsors, the University of Phoenix, Pheedo and EBIG.org.
