  7. @socialwebcafe I'm always concerned about credibility issues and plagiarism issues. #socialcafe #tbw

  15. @PinkMama68 As a blogger there usually isn't much of a book to follow on things but the laws are definitely by the book #SocialCafe #TBW
  16. @socialwebcafe @99Johnsoki I completely agree with that...because its the law doesn't mean people will always follow it... #SocialCafe #TBW
  17. @KrystalS I hear ya (and hi :) ) I tend to use 123RF, to be safe. Then, if I goof, they come after me (& let me know) :) #SocialCafe #TBW
  18. A1: Blogging laws are important to learn so that you don't accidently break any laws and have legal troubles #TBW #Socialcafe
  19. And the lines can be blurred RT @SarahETwinGame: Q1) Confidentiality and privacy are huge...and important to respect #SocialCafe #TBW
  20. Sad, but true. RT @SarahETwinGame @socialwebcafe @99Johnsoki because its the law doesn't mean people will always follow it #SocialCafe #TBW

  22. Thanks! RT @TheBlogWorkshop: @SarahETwinGame Hi Sarah! Thanks for joining us tonight and such great input so far :) #SocialCafe #TBW
  23. @DearCreatives Hey hun! You're just in time a lot of new faces tonight. Glad to have you back :) #Socialcafe #TBW
  24. A2. We should be careful about defaming anyone..(If we're blogging about a particular person.) #socialcafe #tbw
  25. @TheBlogWorkshop Ummm YES I won a ticket! I'm super excited. I'm on vacation that week but I'll still be there #SocialCafe #TBW i
  26. Fines, penalities, loss of reputation RT @TheBlogWorkshop: Q1 Why should I be concerned about legal issues, as a blogger? #SocialCafe #TBW
  27. A2 Laws that affect me and best practices (in that order) #SocialCafe #TBW
  28. A2: The main concern I would think would be privacy issues. There's some crazy info on blogs that shouldn't be there. #socialcafe #tbw
  29. #Bloggers Don't forget you can still copyright your body of work the good old fashioned way too ;) #SocialCafe #TBW
  30. Good 1.. loss of rep.. (Hi there :) ) RT @GlitteryGlossy Fines, penalities, loss of reputation #SocialCafe #TBW

  33. @GlitteryGlossy Hey Glam! Always good to see you in all your glittery fabulousness :) #SocialCafe #TBW
  34. @99Johnsoki I like the "if u can't say something nice, don't say anything." May not always be possible, but safe #SocialCafe #TBW
  35. @jdgarcia law suit? Nasty, but even cyber bullying seems to be unstoppable without enforcement (civil or criminal) #SocialCafe
  36. A2. It's necessary to know which laws affect you in your state/country for blogging AND social media too #SocialCafe #TBW
  37. A2 Intellectual property is a big one, kinda goes with plagerism and privacy #SocialCafe #TBW
  38. There are plugins to prevent copying and pasting, some will slip a link to your blog on that person's site @jdgarcia #SocialCafe #TBW
  39. Social media forces you to keep up to date with your social media outlets B/C people can tag you and you would have no clue #SocialCafe #TBW
  40. GREAT point! MT "@TBWUniversity: A2. It's necessary to know which laws affect you in your state/country for blogging #SocialCafe #TBW"
  41. @CrisHankins Awesome point! So many bloggers don't have a privacy policy that outlines information kept/shared #SocialCafe #TBW
  42. A2: I would imagine you would have to be worried about things such as lawsuits and fines if you break blogging laws. #SocialCafe #TBW
  43. @jdgarcia also, make sure you have a clear copyright policy on your site, and keep a DMCA takedown template handy #SocialCafe #TBW
  44. Thnx! MT@TheBlogWorkshop Awesome point! So many bloggers don't have a privacy policy that outlines information kept/shared #SocialCafe #TBW
  45. @PinkMama68 The tough part is the guidelines change often so you have to be vigilant in keeping up #SocialCafe #TBW
  46. @TBWUniversity So true! #socialcafe #tbw I'm confused a lot but learning all the time. The Internet is always changing and so do we!
  47. @GlitteryGlossy Yeah, those are really handy. Unfortunately, they only keep the "honest ones" from infraction @jdgarcia #SocialCafe #TBW
  48. Visit  http://creativecommons.org  create a quick button to place on your site showing people what they can and cannot copy #SocSocialCafeBWTBW
  49. @socialwebcafe lol so very true Deborah ,but you know in today's world nothing seems to be off limits! lol #socialcafe #tbw
  50. @ToddInKC @SarahETwinGame Yeah I would agree to an extent, I still value my personal privacy though. Protect what you can #Socialcafe #TBW
  51. Q3 Where can I find out more information about legal issues for bloggers? #SocialCafe #TBW
  52. @99Johnsoki Sadly. But, hey, if u can look in the mirror & like what u see, in character, that is a great place to start #SocialCafe #TBW
  53. @ToddInKC IT is important but not realistic to think we can keep anything private anymore with the stalker resources out #SocialCafe #TBW
  54. Q3 Where can I find out more information about legal issues for bloggers? #SocialCafe #TBW
  55. Ok chatters! I promised my hubby he could have me back tonight! Signing off for now! #espritdeshe #SocialCafe #tbw #poweredbybits

  61. As bloggers it's important NOT to forget that you're still creating a body of work when you write, protect it :) #SocialCafe #TBW
  62. So true. Hi Nicole :) MT @NicoleBalderas A1. Always gotta b careful on them interwebs. What u put online stays online 4eva #SocialCafe #tbw
  63. I think one issue is as online content producers we push out so much content that we forget that we SHOULD protect it #SocialCafe #TBW
  64. @Joannenyc5 He should compare notes with my hubby. He might be encouraged. lol :) #SocialCafe #TBW
  65. MT @TheBlogWorkshop As bloggers it's important NOT to forget you're still creating a body of work when u write, protect it #SocialCafe #TBW
  66. I think another issue is we try to formulate information thats up to date and not necessarily keeping it accurate...#SocialCafe #TBW
  67. A3: Hmm..The Blog Workshop sounds like a good place to learn more about the rules and legal issues for bloggers #TBW #SocialCafe
  68. So easy to get busy with content and not realize.. u r not alone. RT @SuspectTriumph Had no idea there were blogging laws #SocialCafe #tbw

  77. A4: the actions I'm taking is educating myself more to protect my blogs and also not to run into any liability issues. #SocialCafe #tbw

  84. A4. It's important for me to know the libel laws and what legal issues journalist (bloggers) face. Be fair....#socialcafe #tbw
