To the laws of which country is a community bound by?
A community run out of Australia has a policy of not removing posts.
A member in the US wants a post removed and claims that it is ‘his right by law because it is a privacy issue’.
Let’s say for the sake of argument that there is an applicable law in the US (I don’t know whether this is the case or not), would that apply in this case?
A member in a UK community says something that could be considered defamatory about a business based in the US. The company’s legal team submit a take down order. What would be the repercussions of ignoring that?
Both of the above examples are fictional, but are things that I’ve come up against in the past.
Does anyone know about the law as it applies to communities?
