Social networks are transforming the Internet.  Even the most conservative “brick and mortar” companies are rushing to establish a presence on Facebook, Twitter and other Web 2.0 platforms.  Companies are finding, however, that these emerging social networks are raising complex, cutting-edge legal issues. Learn what companies are doing to minimize the risks associated with the brave new world of social media.  In this presentation, we will discuss:

  • Copyright issues — Who has rights to the materials that you and your customers make available through social networks?
  • Trademark issues — Protecting your brand on Twitter, Facebook, and similar networks
  • Control — What are the terms of engagement? Whose terms of use and privacy policy govern your presence on a social network?
  • Liability — Taking advantage of “safe harbors” in connection with social networking
