"Finding Your Tweetzone: Balancing the Benefits and Risks of Business Social Networking"

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networking sites are transforming how businesses receive and respond to customer feedback and market new products, how we network with each other, and how we do practically everything else both on the job and off. But the social media revolution is also posing legal issues ranging from intellectual property to employment to securities regulation.

How are businesses using social networking? What are the legal issues created by business and employee use of these tools? We will address: protecting and promoting your company’s brands on these sites; minimizing the risks associated with user-generated content; employment issues; key provisions of social networking policies; corporate and securities law considerations; and recently-announced FTC guidelines regarding viral marketing, astroturfing, and endorsements by bloggers.
