#Fail: Legal Pitfalls of Social Media
Once merely a method for social interaction on the internet, social media has gained prominence in our lives that brings with it complex legal issues and, sometimes, devastating pitfalls. Our panel will discuss issues including unauthorized use of content and the fair use doctrine (including the ongoing Richard Prince lawsuit), defamation on the internet ("Twibel"), and advertising issues such as the FTC guidelines for social media influencers on disclosure of business relationships. In addition, panelists will discuss criminal liability stemming from social media usage, including cases regarding revenge porn, cyber bullying/suicide encouragement, and former Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers' body shaming incident. Please join us for this dynamic discussion!
