New and Free Performancing Legal Issues Forum

I’ve teamed up with the editors at Performancing to create a Legal Issues Forum on their site. I am serving as an adviser on that forum, answering legal questions that bloggers may face.

Though the forum is targeted largely at copyright and content theft issues, any and all legal questions that relate to blogging and the Web are welcome. If I do not know the answer, I will use the resources I have to research it and come up with the best answer possible.

If you have a copyright, content theft or other law-related question, feel free to post it there, or as always, you can email me and I will see what I can do. However, I definitely encourage people to take advantage of the forums as A) Other members may be able to help out and B) Your situation may be similar to someone else’s and they can benefit from your experience.

As always, bear in mind that I am not a lawyer and nothing I say should be taken as legal advice.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Will,

Me thinks you're greatly exaggerating my influence. If I had that power I would banish plagiarism from the Web and ensure Myspace layouts passed a "sanity test" before going live.

Sadly, it is not within my power.

To quote the Tick "I am mighty!" but not that mighty... ;)

I'm glad you discovered the new feature on PT, the comments edit. I was going to post about it but, since you've already figured it out, not much point it seems.

I always brag about my smart readers.

Congratulations on your new outlet for your great advice!

Ironically, I was at those forums earlier today, (linked from another site), and tried to register since that is required in order to post. I tried a few times, including just requesting a new password. No luck. Maybe all the new traffic because of your presence has tied up their servers! ;)

on edit: Even more ironically, 2 minutes after posting this, and several hours after initially trying to register, I get a whole string of emails at once from the Rethinking Blogging site. Must have been backed up and finally jammed loose. I look forward to following the topics over there!
