Video blogging also known as vlogging is being used more and more by people nowadays who are passionate about specific topics or want the world to know what they feel about certain people or ideas. I know most of you want to video blog to let your friends and other people out there share your knowledge whether related to politics or social issues. But if you want something, you have to work for it so, here I am going to tell you what you should know while video blogging which in other words, is the legalities of video blogging.
First of all make up your mind whether you want to video blog with your true
identity or anonymously. I am pretty sure you would go for the latter one as you
can get into serious problems with your boss for example if you're blogging about
work or get into trouble with your family if it's about them. While having discussed
this I am moving over to the legal issues you have to keep in mind.
Before now you could just conceal any affiliation you had with any product or
service, but since the disclosure policy has been enforced, you have to make whom
you are working for known just to be on the safe side. You can do this just
by creating a publication policy page on your blog. Additionally, claiming to be
in connection with a particular company while your not or pretending to be in
collaboration with a non-existing service is regarded as illegal.
Be careful not to give unauthenticated information on your social blog about
organizations or people that might adversely affect to their prestige or authority.
You need to have enough proof of what you are saying, so that when the authorities
confront you, you have all the evidence required. Altogether I would stay away
from this stuff.
One of the most abundant issues that arises when it comes to matters concerning
copyrighted stuff. Copyright issues arise when you use other people's work for
example videos, audio clip or transcriptions and publish it as your own. Be
extremely cautious while searching for images or other things, it would be better if
you used websites that allowed its content to be used safely on others.
When you are vlogging whereby people appear on your video, it is advised that you
ensure that you seek the permission of whichever persons are to appear on
the video if the video wasn't shot at a public place whereby the expectation of
privacy by people is low. If such persons appearing on the video do not give their
permissions, you may edit the video and cut them out, or you could use sort of
video editing tools to blur their faces. Doing these ensures that you avoid possible
law suits for privacy violation that could come your way.
All these above mentioned criteria should be strictly followed by whoever wants to
video blog in future or is already doing it. That would be it for now I hope I made
video blogging easy for you people.
