Often, bloggers search for help to have perceived personal attacks on them, published in other people's blogs, taken down from the web. They may well be correct in their assessment, however, does it constitute having their blogs taken from the web? Blogger's position on this is very clear.
Blogger Help explains, in short, Blogger's position1, on this problem.
This snippet from the above article1, sums Blogger position up, fairly well.
"We strongly believe in freedom of expression, even if a blog contains unappealing or distasteful content or presents unpopular viewpoints. We realize this may be frustrating, and we regret any inconvenience this may cause you. In cases where contact information for the author is listed on the page, we recommend that you work directly with this person to have the content in question removed or changed.
Here are some examples of content we will not remove unless provided with a court order:
- Personal attacks or alleged defamation
- Parody or satire of individuals
- Distasteful imagery or language
- Political or social commentary
It is my opinion only, but I believe that many blogger would rather hope Blogger will do for them, what they should be doing for themselves. Go and see a Lawyer, as you would in 'real life', for a similar offence. If the claims by these slanderers, and libelists can't be substantiated, they may be ordered by a judge, to take their rubbish off the Internet. If, as mentioned above, a court order is obtained, then Blogger will also act.
