Blogging is NOT a Crime

Lee Odden     Online Marketing

By now you’ve certainly read about the BS lawsuit Traffic Power has issued against Aaron Wall. The Wall Street Journal, Slashdot and many others have picked up this story.

Aaron has a Online Marketing Blog/2005/08/this-is-just-wrong-traffic-power-sues.html”>LOT of support. Looks like he’s standing up for principle and going to fight it. Threadwatch has a post about those details and about how you can contribute to this cause.

Somewhat Frank has posted some very useful links regarding what blogger rights. Also, I don’t want it misconstrued that my support for Aaoron means I think it’s ok to defame or libel companies on blogs, because I don’t. The issue here is that there is a big difference between explaining your personal opinion and experience and doing the things TP is alleging.

I do hope that, should this not go to court, that Aaron also considers sending any unused funds to the Red Cross or similar for Katrina victims.
