What is a Blog?

Interpreted from the I&B Ministry, supplement to India’s Information Technology Amendment Act 2008:

This is tricky: blogs do two things - they publish content, and have user generated content in the form of comments. at one level, they are a publisher, and at another, an intermediary. The guidelines however, clearly define a blogger only as a user, and that a blog is A"a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video." This is generic, and could mean any online publication, including ours, and online publishers would also come under the ambit of the definition of the term 'users'.
