Don’t bloggers need legal protection? January 7, 2008

Posted by kewroad in Uncategorized.

The front page of last week’s USA edition of PR Week has reported that the blog, ThinkSecret.com, has agreed to shutdown after a lengthy 3 year lawsuit with Apple. The problem stemmed from the fact that the site received leaked information about Apple products from an unknown source. The details of the settlement are unknown with the two parties settling out of court.

In this ever changing social media world, this latest news regarding ThinkSecret.com surely emphasises the need for bloggers to have more protection legally just as regular journalists already have.
