  • Heather Burns: A Web Designer’s Law Update

    Heather Burns: A Web Designer’s Law Update

    WordCamp Manchester 2014Speaker: Heather Burns

    October 10, 2014 — Regardless of CMS or platform, web designers and developers have to comply with national and EU laws affecting our work. Most of the resources about these laws are written for lawyers, by lawyers, and these resources offer little insight for those of us who are obliged to implement the laws on client sites. So once again Heather has taken it on herself to translate the legal gobbledygook into practical insights that the web community can implement. A new EU law, The Consumer Rights Directive, takes effect on 13 June 2014, replacing the 1990s trading law that currently governs e-commerce transactions in the UK. All web sites offering goods or services online must comply, and failure to do so cancels the e-commerce transaction or contract. Heather’s talk delivers a plain English explanation of what web site owners need to do to bring their WordPress e-commerce operations into line with the regulations. Heather also gives an update on recent legal developments including domains, cookies, and databases which directly affect our work as web professionals.

  • Erica Jorgensen: Legal Considerations for Bloggers

    Erica Jorgensen: Legal Considerations for Bloggers

    WordCamp Seattle 2014Speaker: Erica Jorgensen

    August 23, 2014 — As a blogger, you post photos, and probably quotes from people you interview (or, maybe you borrow quotes and content from other websites). If you have a transactional site, you’re making marketing claims. Every single one of these things can get you into legal trouble, and many bloggers are doing them horribly wrong. Which photos are illegal to post on your blog? What is “fair use,” and how does it affect bloggers, exactly? To what degree can you tweak a direct quotation from someone? What about libel and slander? And what constitutes over-promising from a marketing perspective, and how can it get you into hot water with the FTC? What you don’t know about communication law can hurt you. I’ll present examples writers who’ve found themselves stuck in a legal quagmire, and give practical guidelines and resources for keeping your blog in line.
