Dosh

An interesting piece in today's The National by Angela Giuffrida regarding the developers vs blogs debate. Apart from quoting that idiot McNabb, the piece does well. But the following quote is something I thought other people posting on blogs might find of interest...

While there are no defamation laws in Dubai specifically governing online content, an online author found guilty of making false accusations against an individual or company faces similar penalties to those charged with defamation using other forms of media. “The penalties for such crimes are imprisonment of between one and six months and/or a fine of up to Dh5,000,” said Miriam McGregor, an associate at the law firm Clyde & Co.

So I hope you've all got a spare Dhs 5,000, just in case. The full story's here. Sorry about the PR bloke in it...

I hope that you have a spare 5,000 for defaming that McNabb guy by calling him an idiot.

Unless you can prove that he is one.
