A federal appeals court is currently working through a libel case involving two online newspapers that will probably become precedent for many online libel cases. There has yet to be a libel case against a weblogger, but it is an inevitable scenario given the general American legal mentality (sue first, think later).
We can only hope that larger media organizations like The Hartford Courant and The New Haven Advocate will do most of the work necessary for protecting Web publishers’ rights, because as of now, an average weblogger would be hard pressed to find the funding and legal support to take on a real libel case.

I’ve said that least 1450760 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean
fantastic publish, very informative. I ponder why the other experts of this sector do not notice this. You must continue your writing. I am sure, you have a huge readers’ base already!
