Many companies are rapidly expanding the types of content they display and manage online. They are using digital platforms from websites to social media networks to publish original content, host advertising and interact with online users in diverse ways. As new business models proliferate, clients will be looking to their lawyers to help navigate this increasingly complex environment. The purpose of this program is to give attorneys a basic grounding in online content management with a focus on recent developments in the following areas: customer privacy, intellectual property, native advertising, and liability under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Topics to be discussed will include the following:
· Using website and social media sites for promotions and contests.
· Online customer data collection, privacy and handling of subpoenas.
· First Amendment and right of publicity issues raised by native advertising.
· Copyright, fair use and licensing of images and still photographs.
· Protections and processes for online platforms and copyright holders under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.
· Protections from liability for libel and other claims under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act
