Berkman Center for Internet & Society - Bloggership: How Blogs are Transforming Legal Scholarship Conference
Bloggers often work collaboratively with other bloggers, a phenomenon I call "co-blogging." The decision to co-blog may seem casual, but it can have significant and unexpected legal consequences for the co-bloggers. This Essay looks at some of these consequences under partnership law, employment law and copyright law and explains how each of these legal doctrines can lead to counterintuitive results. The Essay then discusses some recommendations to mitigate the harshness of these results.
