Why You Should Attend

Social media has become a critical part of companies’ marketing strategies. It, however, also has been a source of considerable litigation where uploaded content is concerned, creating risks for social media users. These risks are particularly acute given the speed in which posts are generated and disseminated, sometimes without the same clearance processes applied to other forms of advertising.

What You Will Learn

• How are companies using social media, while protecting themselves from potential liability?
• What is the current state of the law of social media post embedding and the Ninth Circuit server test?
• How do fair use and right of publicity principles apply to social media?

Who Should Attend

IP lawyers and practitioners advising on the use of social media should find this program to be informative.
