Companies Will Learn What the Law Says About Blogging at the Blog Business Summit

Share Article

At the upcoming Blog Business Summit in Seattle, WA, attendees will get a primer in the finer points of blogging and the law from the people who know it best: lawyers who blog. The Business Blogging Conference will take place at Seattle's Bell Harbor Conference Center October 25-27, 2006.

I'm looking forward to sharing my legal training and blogosphere experience with this audience. The Blog Business Summit is really the perfect venue to have this kind of practical dialog.

When businesses look at blogging, one of the first questions they ask is, "How do we mitigate our legal risk?" Often, the company's legal department or law firm will come back with a simple answer, "Don't blog."

But in the past year, many companies have realized that staying out of the online community carries a tremendous downside. And that raises the legal issue all over again.

The Blog Business Summit -- the nation's premier business blogging conference -- offers a hands-on, "how to" approach to the myriad issues facing companies in the blogosphere. The legal questions are no exception. In order to provide attendees with the best information about law and blogging, the conference organizers have put together an excellent panel of blog-savvy attorneys.

"As an attorney who blogs, I empathize with companies that are struggling with the legal realities of new media, " said Kevin O'Keefe of LexBlog, who will speak on the panel. "I'm looking forward to sharing my legal training and blogosphere experience with this audience. The Blog Business Summit is really the perfect venue to have this kind of practical dialog."

Also on the panel are Phil Mann of Mann Law Group, who specializes in matters of intellectual property and Buzz Bruggeman, CEO of ActiveWords who practiced law for 30 years and specialized in real estate and development work and has an extensive background in litigation.

Other event speakers include such business blogosphere luminaries as The Industry Standard founder John Battelle, Weblogs, Inc. CEO Jason Calacanis and IBM New Media Communications Director Ben Edwards.
