Das Buch 2011 “Knowledge Policy for the 21st Century: A Legal Perspective”, das auf eine Tagung 2007 zurückgeht, ist auch online Open Access verfügbar und enthält auch einen Aufsatz von Damien O’Brien “Blogs and the Law: Key Legal Issues for the Blogosphere”
copyright law, defamation law, Internet jurisdiction, employment law, and
the law of authorization for intermediaries will all prove to be a significant impediment to the functioning of the blogosphere. The many challenges that these areas of the law will have on the blogosphere have, to a
small degree, already been experienced, with an increase in actions filed
against bloggers, specifically for defamation. It is expected that the amount
of litigation in the courts involving blogs will increase dramatically, as blogs
become a mainstream form of online communication.
