OK guys, here I go again!
I have already posted about this issue, and I haven't got a firm opinion yet.
Also, I am starting my first blog with my first blacklist;
I am going to publish a list of drivers who do not behave according to driving (and parking) regulations.
I am going to describe their vehicle and their number plate.
In some cases I am going to give evidence with a photo (that's easier for parking offences, such as using spaces allocated to handicapped people), but in others I am just going to take a note of their cars and publish the details and circumstances.
Now, what's going to happen?
Shall I have to do my best to publish anonymously?
I am just going to feel better if I can do something, although nothing in practice, against bullyish and/or bad drivers.
Every opinion is going to be appreciated, I feel very uncomfortable at present, especially because I happen to be in Europe, where privacy regulations are a nightmare to understand and to new not to be a completely foggy place to walk in!
Well, I guess I could.
Unfortunately that lawyer could get on my list.
I thought that maybe some WHT member, possibly from Europe but not necessarily, might know.
And it's not that easy to find accountants and lawyers who are experts of web and privacy issues.
And anyway it would be a formal opinion, I need to know the practical aspects maybe even better.
But thank you Daverj for your time and your advice!
I side with daverj on this one. For something like this you definitely want to speak with a lawyer, and not the advice of someone from a message board. Sure someone may come along and *claim* to be a lawyer but what if they are not, or the information they give you is totally wrong? You don't want to take a chance like this when the outcome could be lawsuits or even criminal prosecution.
The part that concerns me the most is posting their plate numbers. You don't have to find a lawyer that is an expert on web and privacy issues. Talk to a good general lawyer, and if he can't help you he will refer you to someone he knows. That business is full of "one hand washing the other" if you know what I mean.
But by all means, talk to someone first...and that way if anyone gives you any trouble, you can calmly reply..."talk to my lawyer!"
