  • Description

    The gradual transformation of social media into a medium for advertising has generated a slew of new rules and regulations to consider. The discourse over platforms includes the question of who owns postings, who is responsible for user-posted content, how should advertisers interact with their followers and what is the proper procedure for disclosing endorsements and sponsorships.

    This CLE course will review the rules that are common across platforms and those that differ, the stringency of platforms that go above and beyond common law, content ownership and use, sharing, liking and posting, paid advertising to social media sites, and online disclosures.
