The following is not a bill meant to become a law. That will never happen... this is an internet bill to force companies to evaluate their policies and think before they make stupid decisions! If they choose not to abide by the bill, then they risk being blacklisted by bloggers everywhere! (See second entry)
International Bloggers’ Bill of Rights.
posted 01/04/05 (edited Monday, Feb 21, 2005 16:46)
We, the inhabitants of the Blogosphere, do hereby proclaim that bloggers everywhere are entitled to the following basic rights:
FREEDOM TO BLOG.
FREEDOM FROM PERSECUTION AND RETALIATION BECAUSE OF OUR BLOGS:
1.) If an employer wishes to discipline an employee because of his/her blog, it must first establish clear-cut blogging policies and distribute these to all of its employees.
2.) Blogging employees shall be given warning before being disciplined because of their blogs.
3.) NO ONE shall be fired because of his/her blog, unless the employer can prove that the blogger did intentional damage to said employer through the blog.
Blogophobic companies, who violate the Bloggers’ Bill of Rights, will be blacklisted by millions of bloggers the world over.
