Today, launching an internet web site can be quite as easy as a few file uploads and simple clicks of one’s mouse. Not to mention, you can say whatever you wish or place whatever it is you want on your web site, right?

Cyber Misconceptions:

Unfortunately, most amateur webmasters (and some corporate webmasters) believe that they are free to place whatever content he or she wishes on the web site or web blog. However, this is a great misconception among many web designers and web hosts and the consequences can be quite unfortunate.

The common misconception that there are no laws governing web content is simply not true. The idea that “one will never find the photo or paragraph that I ‘borrowed’ from another web site” is a belief that is false and will ultimately result in some form of legal action towards the person who appropriated the image or content.

The results are not exactly the ‘cyber fame’ that you wanted. You could be sued personally for damages for the content you display. You could be fired from your employment or suspended from your school. In some cases, you could receive jail terms with felony convictions. The web page that you once thought of as promising has now presented to you a harsh look at ‘cyber reality’.
