Publisher Comments:

A blog or tweet can get its author arrested or cost a lot of money in legal battles—this practical guide explains how to stay out of trouble when writing online

Every time an internet user blogs or tweets, they may be subject to the laws of more than 200 jurisdictions. As more than a few bloggers or tweeters have discovered, you can be sued in your own country, or arrested in a foreign airport as you're heading off on vacation—just for writing something that wouldn't raise an eyebrow if you said it in a bar or a cafe. In this handy guide, media law expert Mark Pearson explains how to get your message across without landing in legal trouble. In straightforward language, he explains what everyone writing online needs to know about free speech, reputation and defamation, privacy, official secrets and national security, copyright, and false advertising. Whether you host a celebrity Facebook page, tweet about a hobby, or like to think of yourself as a citizen journalist, you need this guide to keep on the right side of cyberlaw.

Mark Pearson is a journalist, a professor of journalism, and the coauthor of The Journalist's Guide to Media Law. He is a correspondent for Reporters Without Borders and has been published in the Far Eastern Economic Review and the Wall Street Journal.
