Staying out of legal trouble

Jeff Jarvis points to this great resource for staying out legal trouble while blogging. Here are the 10 ten things you can do:

The 10 rules to blog by:
1. Check your facts.
2. Avoid virtual vendettas.
3. Obey the law.
4. Weigh promises.
5. Reveal secrets selectively.
6. Consider what you copy.
7. Learn recording limits.
8. Don’t abuse anonymity.
9. Shun conflicts of interest.
10. Seek legal advice.

All great advice, except that 10 is not that practical. Until faced with a legal action I don’t think many bloggers are going to consult a legal expert.
