Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

guidelines for blogging at Groove

Ozzie on his blog: guidelines for public blogging at Groove. Very much on topic with my previous posting.

In general it seems to be ok, it simply says that you have to be respectful of other people, make sure that people understand you're not a spokesperson for the company, and that you're not revealing trade secrets, etc. The only problem is this paragraph:

Finally, please be aware that the company may request that you temporarily confine your website or weblog commentary to topics unrelated to the company (or, in rare cases, that you temporarily suspend your website or weblog activity altogether) if it believes this is necessary or advisable to ensure compliance with securities regulations or other laws.

Now, as far as I can see, it says that the company can shut you down whenever they please. I mean "securities regulations or other laws"... that covers everything, doesn't it?

Not too good then. On the bright side, they have a policy, and their employees know which rules they must follow, like them or not. That's a step in the right direction, because whatever is on paper can be discussed without fear of misunderstandings.
