The team at n0tice.com has published guidelines designed to help publishers and broadcasters stay safe when managing content submitted by users.
Staying safe when using UGC
Important to make locally-relevant
Note: The guidelines are written from a UK perspective, but many of the points are globally-relevant. However, journalists and media managers might need to adapt the content for local relevance.
I have circulated this to many of the journalists I am working with around the world in independent journalism and exiled media suggesting they run a quick course for all staff on what to look out for in order to avoid making mistakes.
