Copyrights, Bad Reviews and Social Media Smears: An Update on Internet Law

Barnes & Thornburg LLP


Date & Time: December 12, 2018 (Wed)  12:30 PM  US/Eastern

Speaker: Jeff Barron

1.0 hour CLE credit pending

Join Jeff Barron for a one-hour CLE presentation on recent developments in Internet law. This presentation will touch on issues that affect website operators, businesses, and ordinary consumers. We’ll discuss:

  • The intersection of copyright and trademark law with the Internet 
  • Efforts to dilute the immunity provided to website operators by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act 
  • New laws targeting nonconsensual pornography and human trafficking (and their unintended consequences) 
  • How to deal with bad reviews and defamatory content 
  • Best practices for avoiding trouble in the first place

Designed to be sophisticated enough for the expert but accessible to the curious, this presentation will provide tools that you can use whether you are helping a social media platform navigate increasingly uncertain waters or assisting a client who was wronged by a bad review. Please join us.
