Earlier this week, we received the good news that travel blogger extraordinaire Christopher Elliott sucessfully resolved the defamation lawsuit brought against him by Palm Coast Travel. Chris found a top-notch lawyer to help with his case through our Online Media Legal Network (OMLN) (thanks for the shout out to the network, Chris!).
Huge props go to Gregory Herbert and his team at Greenberg Traurig for answering the Bat-Signal and bringing the matter to a successful resolution. It's dedicated professionals like Greg that make OMLN work.
Of course, I would be remiss if I failed to remind all of our readers about OMLN. OMLN is a network of lawyers and law school clinics from across the country willing to offer free and reduced fee legal representation for qualified online media ventures and other digital media creators. OMLN lawyers are available to tackle a broad range of legal issues, including business formation and governance, copyright licensing and fair use, employment and freelancer agreements, access to government information, pre-publication review of content, and representation in litigation.
So if you find yourself facing a lawsuit over your online publishing activities, drop us a line (Bat-Signal optional).
