Understand the legal challenges of social media on Nov 14 @DetroitAWC

 
Is your social media legal?
 
A retweet could land you in court. A ‘borrowed’ photo could breach copyright. Do recent news stories have you concerned about how you can remain legal while getting maximum attention for your social media posts?
 
A lot has changed since we’ve discussed this topic! The world of social media changes weekly, sometimes daily, so this is a great opportunity to get the latest legal insight. We will explore the issues and discuss real-world examples to illustrate key points about the proper and improper use of social media in corporate communications.
 
Butzel Long attorneys Robin Luce-Herrmann and Jennifer Dukarski will guide us on the following topics:
●       Social media and our First Amendment right for free speech
●       Understanding how reporters use social media
●       Legal implications in creating public forums and the ability to block certain persons or entities
●       Employer rights to control certain messages by employees on social media
●       How those running for office use Twitter and Facebook
●       Voice-enabled technology, your privacy and the new Internet of Things
●       Pitfalls involved in sharing on social media
●       How to keep your social media channels secure
 
 
Robin Luce-Herrmann is head of Butzel Long’s Media Group. Representing a broad array of clients, Ms. Herrmann concentrates her practice in the areas of media law, particularly defamation, privacy and access issues. She serves as General Counsel to the Michigan Press Association, the official trade association for the newspapers of Michigan, with more than 300 members throughout the State.
 
Jennifer Dukarski focuses her practice at the intersection of technology and communications with an emphasis on the legal issues arising from emerging and disruptive innovation including vehicle safety, connected and autonomous cars, data privacy and security, and mobile applications. She advises on big data, automotive threat vectors, and privacy.
 
In 2016, this AWC Detroit program sold out and people are still talking about it! Don’t miss this exciting breakfast discussion on a topic that is crucial for all communicators to understand.
 
Thursday, November 14, 2018, 8:00 – 10:00 a.m.
Butzel Long
41000 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills 48304

Description of Topic
Audiobooks are the hottest new thing in the publishing industry. But where do you begin? How does one find their narrator? How much does it cost? What different options are available? What are the pros and cons? What should be expected in turn around time, and what kind of obstacles can you encounter? Audiobook production should only take a couple of weeks, however, that was NOT the case for me. I will provide YOU the key knowledge to prevent what happened to me, from happening to you!
