Another employee fired for blogging

Mark Jen was fired from Google for Blogging and we thought the era has changed till when we heard about Drew Townson. Drew Townson an employee of Mercenary Audio got fired for blogging. Click here for the complete story. I think its time for a corporate blogging rule, a general one and then different companies can change it accordingly.

What should be included under Blogging laws (for a working blogger under a contract)?

  • Can he mention his/her company name on the blog?
  • Can he mention his/her day at office? In what detail then?
  • Other rules

We need some time and hopefully the bloggers fraternity can come together and define some laws to help ourselves. Please add on your suggestions.
