  1. We are starting a blog next year, although I am sure we will not break any laws.

    Thank you for those links above, a good read.

  2. bloggers don’t receive same legal protection as news paper agencies

  3. I wish we could see this type of blogs in Australia, specially with information for lawyers.

  4. Hopefully, we could actually prevent any illegal acts online will be prevented. Copyright law should be implemented seriously over the online community.

  5. Well, protecting your site from any possible problem online is very difficult to do cause there are so many internet users everyday. Maybe search engines, together with the help of other people (like site owners) will do something to prevent this problem.

  6. All owner of the site must take necessary action in order to protect their site. In this way, they will be able to avoid any future trouble.
