Social Media Law: New Issues Arising from Fast Growing Business Models

Law Seminars International will be hosting an advanced one-day seminar entitled "Social Media Law: New Issues Arising from Fast Growing Business Models" on November 10, 2010 in Chicago. The program will take an inward and an outward looking approach. The inward approach will focus on what a business needs to do to minimize the risks from its own employees and others when they engage in social media as part of their own lives, and as part of their jobs. The presentation will include specific policies you need to have in place to make sure you are engaging in the best practices available, and understand the risks and the opportunities. The outward approach will address what you need to know to make sure your intentional, or even unintentional, social media marketing efforts comply with the existing regulatory frameworks, while protecting you against harm from your competitors. Completing the picture, we will consider the ethical implications of social network posts, including threats from their use in litigation. This program is designed for attorneys, business executives, and technical professionals involved with designing and implementing social media programs for businesses and other organizations.

Kirkland & Ellis LLP partner Ross Weisman will speak on "Content Liability Issues for Your Corporate Social Media Activities: Current Exposure and Changes in the Proposed Social Networking Safety Act." Please visit the website for more information.
