TechZulu Law went on the road for Episode 2, where co-hosts Christina Gagnier and Lisa Borodkin broadcast live from the floor at BlogWorld Expo 2010 in Las Vegas with special guests J.D. Lasica and Art Neill.
We disabused J.D. of the notion that law is never sexy, and learned from Art that Mozilla does more to preserve individual freedom online than just making the best free kickass browser on the Net. Finally, we were very impressed by Izea’s FTC Survival Guide for bloggers – the best piece of legal swag in the whole conference.

Tip of the Week: Izea.com’s “FTC Survival Guides”
Izea is a company that connects bloggers with brands with a very comprehensive ethics program and FTC compliance suite to help bloggers and companies disclose sponsorships and endorsements. We caught them handing out “FTC Survival Guide” cards on the show floor among all the giant pens and chocolate. Pretty cool.
