I'm currently building a social networking site (as are droves of other startups) and I was looking for some experienced input on the legal issues that need to be taken into account.
- A lot of sites take user posts/avatars and displays them in a feed on the homepage?
- What are the best practices to avoid any liability as far as company employees reviewing/using the user's private data?
- Is it worth working with another companies' API?
- What are the legal barriers?
And so on.
It'd be fantastic if some folks could thoroughly layout a primer of the legal issues facing entrepreneurs who are starting social networking sites, or at least pinpoint other items that raised headaches for you.
