IP issues and influencer regulation considerations for social media


As social media becomes a more prominent tool for both creators and brands, new questions and risks arise. Users often do not understand who owns the content posted on social media accounts, and how it can be used, appropriated, and shared. And with the rise of influencer marketing, regulatory issues and disclosure guidelines are a crucial consideration for brands that use influencers to promote their products.
This panel will discuss potential pitfalls of social media marketing through the framework of relevant areas of law, and will provide guidance for how to avoid liability.

The program will offer 1 NY and PA CLE credit.
