The Legal Issues of Social Media 

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm | check-in starts at 5:30 pm

Stamford Innovation Center

175 Atlantic Street, Stamford, CT  06901

Social media websites such as Facebook®, LinkedIn® and Twitter® are changing the ways we advertise and promote ourselves to others, the way we communicate with others, and even the way we think about things. The rise of social media has been so fast and so prevasive that our legal system has had trouble keeping up with the new technology. As a result, there are many cutting-edge legal issues that attorneys, accountants and other professionals are only beginning to grapple with. In this fast-paced, entertaining presentation, technology lawyer Cliff Ennico will walk you through the social media maze and help answer some of your questions about the rules that apply when you engage in social activities online.

You will learn "state of the art" answers to the most pressing questions involving social media, including:

  • Do you have privacy rights when you post something on Facebook?
  • Can someone post information about you online without your permission?
  • Who owns a Facebook and Twitter account?
  • Can you use information on someone else's Facebook page without their permission?
  • Can you be sued because of something you say on Facebook or LinkedIn?
  • Can you be sued if somebody else says something bad on your Facebook page?
  • Can employers restrict their employees' social media activities?
  • Can the Government (or a hostile person) use your social media postings as evidence against you?
  • Do you have to charge sales taxes when you sell something on a social media website?
