Defending Blogs Against Legal Attack

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Bloggers often face legal challenges from those unhappy about being criticized. A nationally known free speech litigator will discuss practical issues that arise when such lawsuits are enacted or threatened. We will discuss how accused bloggers can manage to afford a legal defense, and how they can respond in order to minimize the impact of possible litigation. We will look at several examples and best practices from real life cases. Although there will be discussion of specific legal issues, the focus will be on practical considerations.
