Questions: What are the main legal issues an online journalist needs to know about? What are the key aspects of each issue (how can you lose a case—what are the elements)? What are some best practices you can use to avoid lawsuits? Overall, how is the online world unique from earlier print and broadcast media in the legal issues it faces?
