WordPress and the Law(suit) – Automattic’s Response to Legal Threats
January 1, 2017
I have no complaints about WordPress as a respectable host. Great Article! Keep up the Good Work!
I was honored by the invite to give a talk at thePost Status Publish conference lastThursday. Thanks again to Krogsgard for the invitation – it was a great event, that I hope was not bogged down too much by a late afternoon discussion of legal issues.
My original topic was “WordPress + the Law”, but I changed the title slightly to “WordPress + the Law(suit)”: I used some of the many lawsuits we see against Automattic as examples of the legal issues that hosts,users, developers working with WordPress might see.
At the beginning of my talk, I laid out three general principals for dealing with legal threats that we follow at Automattic. Now doing this short follow up post to flesh out those principles a bit more, since a few people asked about them after the talk.
