Brazil: Rights of bloggers, rights of blog readers

Brazilian blogger Alex Castro [pt] posts the Terms of Use of his blog, among them the rights of bloggers and of blog readers. “Blog readers should remember that reading and commenting on a blog is a privilege that can be revoked at any time. Nobody has the “right” to read a blog or to comment on it. (…) Bloggers should remember that no one is obliged to read blogs, that readers can disappear in a flash and to have readers is a not easy to conquer privilege. Nobody has the “right” to be read and reviewed.”
