Are You An Accidental Outlaw?

Nominet have produced an interesting online quiz to test your knowledge of how the law applies to online activities.

It is quite easy to accidentally break the law when online without knowing you have done so – until the lawyers come knocking! Perhaps a little unlikely, but possible. My own score was lower than I was expecting despite working close to this area, and being an amateur photographer.

Looking through what online behaviour can be considered illegal, many of the behaviours are things that many of us would indulge in without a second thought. Given the widespread nature of such behaviour, you may think it is unlikely that you will ever be caught, but that could be dangerous thinking!

The more high profile your online activities are, the more likely you are to be “found out” and have to face the consequences. It is worth learning about this early before the lawyers strike!
