Blog Business 101: Why you need Corporate Counsel

Filed as General on March 28, 2006 12:00 pm

Over at Blog Network Watch, I’ve penned a piece entitled Blog Business 101: Why you need Corporate Counsel. It contains some good lessons for newcomers to the Blog Network business who want to be taken seriously as a business.

In the last four months, we’ve relied on counsel’s advice a number of times to resolve issues both public and private. Sometimes these have been simple things, such as reviewing and editing our blogger contracts. But it’s that simple question.. has a lawyer reviewed your blogger contract.. that I think most blog networks would answer in the negative. And that’s where your trouble begins. Copyright issues, ownership of content issues (these are different questions), payments, obligations on either end, and so on.
