Every December the good folks at Stem Legal encourage bloggers to promote the many fabulous Canadian law blogs that are now available. And this year is no exception: a quick look at the #Clawbies2012 Twitter hashtag reveals some worthy additions for your RSS feedreader. As a Canadian living in the United States, it’s my great pleasure to do my part for this commendable effort. So I’m offering my nominations for the 2012 CLawBies awards based on blog posts regarding one of my favorite topics — social media and the law:
- For a view of social media and the law from the perspective of management, I’d suggest you take a look at the Hicks Morley blog All About Information. You’ll find some helpful information there on social media policies and guidance on what employers can do in and with social media.
- The Employment & Human Rights Law in Canada blog provides some informative posts that discuss social media examples and issues from both sides of the 49th parallel.
- Similarly, the Data Governance Law blog has been covering social media issues in both Canada and the United States. Even if you live and work exclusively in the United States, it’s interesting to get this Canadian perspective on what’s happening in your home territory.
I’d encourage you to check out these blogs, as well as other blogs listed on the Clawbies.ca website. In addition, check out the Canadian, Please video I’ve posted above (make sure you turn on the captions!). Once you’ve finished both exercises, you might understand better why Andrew Gunadie and Julia Bentley claim in the video, “I know that you wanna be Canadian.”
