Blog Law Blog is a blog about the law of blogs. It is authored by University of North Dakota Law Professor Eric E. Johnson, who appears to have staked out this niche of intellectual property law. Now, in order to expand the reach of Blog Law Blog, Professor Johnson has just rolled out “Tweet Law Tweets”.

Of course, people who post on Facebook presumably know that information shared with friends could end up in the hands of enemies. And we have all been warned that what is posted on the internet stays there forever. But beware of another electronic threat to your privacy: email.
This week alone noticed MASSIVE hacking activity.
It has become a holiday tradition, just like the Macy’s Parade. This year this exercise in Yuletide legal hairsplitting is occurring in Canonsburg, PA, the place where they pay homage all-year-round to native crooners Perry Como and Bobby Vinton.
