Description: This lively session, led by a long-term Silicon Valley lawyer/technologist, will cut a broad swath. Among the issues covered will be:
risk of loss of some copyright/ownership rights by posting content on social media sites;
seeking a takedown of others’ posting of one’s copyrighted material;
complying with the endorsement / testimonial / influencer guidelines promulgated and enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
avoiding unauthorized use/posting of others’ copyrighted and/or private information; and
when running one’s own interactive environment, gaining the fullest possible benefits of the liability immunity provided by the federal Communications Decency Act (CDA); and
The session will also feature:
a deep dive into, and demo of, the trail left when one posts on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn — and how a vast trove of information might later be subject to discovery in a legal proceeding; and
a summary of key ethics issues faced by attorneys advising clients on social media issues.
