Social media, from Facebook to Twitter to blogs, LinkedIn and Yammer is exploding all around us. Advertising and marketing agencies are developing social media plans for clients and for their own companies. But, not everything we read or post is necessarily in the best interest of our clients or our own companies. During this session, we will discuss the legal implications surrounding social media marketing programs.

Attendees will take away important legal considerations for using social media in advertising, explore the new frontiers of integrating intellectual property law into social media law, including defamation, copyright, trademarks, slander and liability and how these pertain to social media programs and individual site rules and regulations.
