The growth of streamlined Web sites presented primarily in journal form, known as “Web logs” or, more succinctly, “blogs,” operated and populated by individuals as well as businesses, continues to be nothing short of explosive. But as usually is the case with such rapid adoption of technology and communication ability, there is the potential for legal liability.

This article will provide a brief overview of some of the major legal issues presented to and which must be considered by those who are or who contemplate operating a blog. Although this article focuses on U.S. law, the global reach of the Internet means that the laws of many jurisdictions may potentially apply, which may not be as protective of certain relevant rights as our law is.
