“Blogging as a Liability Risk.” Blogging Is a Liability Risk. N.p., n.d. Web. 29 Mar. 2014.

This article discusses the legal liabilities of blogging for a company and how to handle the various types of information that circulates on a corporate blog.  This post mostly focuses on defamation and it’s two forms: slander and libel.  From a corporate standpoint, you should have a policy for your employees about blogging.  Because companies can be held responsible for anything an employee may post, it is wise for the company to set rules.  If an employee is writing reviews about competitors and ex-employers, the company and the employee are liable and can get into some serious trouble in accordance with the Personal & Advertising Injury provision.

 

Blogging is like all other risks in business, you must weigh the pros and cons and go from there.
