A few hyperlocal publishers out there might be able to help with MA student J Townend’s current investigation on Help Me Investigate which asks ‘What are the legal risks for online publishers / bloggers / journalists in the UK?’:
What happens if you’re an online publisher or writer in the UK who doesn’t have access to an in-house lawyer?
- Do online publishers receive many/any legal threats and of what nature?
- How do they deal with them?
- Are there adequate resources available?
I’m currently completing an MA project examining online publishing & media law… As part of this, I am surveying bloggers/journalists about their experiences of media law in the UK.
If you have some experiences you feel are relevant, contact J Townend either via Help Me Investigate or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
