Your laptop and court evidence

Be aware that what you say and do on your laptop or computer could end up the courtroom.

The discovery process in a lawsuit is when the evidence is gathered. If it is ordered that the courts are to go backward into your system then all you have done, all you have said, is there to see.

It can be a very expensive process - electronic forensics do not come cheap. What you need to know is that it can be done. So bear this in mind when you are social networking. Do not bash your boss or your employer. Do not speak against a supplier or a customer. When it comes to slander or libel always act as if your mom is standing behind you reading as you type.
