Online Newspapers

Local Newspapers Online

Online NewspapersAn online newspaper is the online version of a newspaper, either as a stand-alone publication or as the online version of a printed periodical.

Online newspapers are much like hard-copy newspaper and have the same legal boundaries, such as laws about libel, privacy and copyright, also apply to online publications in most countries, like in the UK. Also in the UK the Data Protection Act applies to online newspapers and news pages, as well as the PCC rules in the UK. But the distinction was not very clear to the public in the UK about what was a blog or forum site and what was an online newspaper.

In 2007, a ruling was passed to formally regulate UK-based online newspapers, news audio, and news video websites covering the responsibilities expected of them and to clear up what is, and what is not, an online publication.
