Legal precedent is far from concrete on many of the most controversial issues surrounding blogging and Internet sharing, but in light of recent court cases, many bloggers are concerned about their legal rights and responsibilities. Lisen Stromberg will lead lawyers Lindsay LaVineLiza Barry-Kessler, and Divya Jayachandran through a thorough review of the current state of legal definitions and precedent, and how you can protect yourself. Starting with a brief overview of key legal concepts, including defamation, copyright, trademark and right of publicity, the goal is to get clarity on when and how your blogging may put you at legal risk, and where to turn for support should trouble arise.
