New online tools and popular social networking sites allow for greater collaboration and exchange of ideas, but these same sites can be used to spread false statements that cause harm to individuals or their businesses. Indeed, some sites exist solely to encourage users to vent or divulge inside information about employers, employees, organizations, and even ex-girlfriends or boyfriends.For this seminar, Daliah will provide an overview of defamation law and use relevant examples of cases she has handled to illustrate the challenges involved with prosecuting or defending online defamation cases. Topics will include discovering the identity of anonymous posters, tolling of the statute of limitations, jurisdictional issues, and the liability (or lack thereof) of websites like yelp.com, ratemyprofessor.com, ripoffreport.com, and glassdoor.com.
It has been over six years since the FTC issued its revisions to the Federal Guidelines Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising, but many businesses are still not sure how to properly abide by these standards and are ignorant of their liability for deceptive advertising. For example, popular apparel company Ann Taylor recently received a warning letter from the FTC for its blog-for-gifts program, and Legacy Learning Centers coughed up $250,000.00 to settle with the FTC after the FTC filed a formal complaint against the company.This Saper Law seminar seeks to demystify the FTC disclosure rules. Daliah Saper will first provide an overview of the FTC regulations and then recommend tools businesses can use to comply with these rules. It doesn’t have to be complex or difficult for advertisers to ensure that blog posts, Facebook updates, and even Tweets meet disclosure obligations under FTC, FDA, SEC, and other regulations.
Avoiding accidental copyright infringement is more important than ever in the realm of social media. Websites all over the internet invite you to "share" their content with your Facebook friends or tweet it to your Twitter followers. What are the legal limitations on what you can share and where you can post it? Can you post an entire newspaper article to your personal blog? Make your professional wedding photos into an album on Facebook? Upload that amazing news story to YouTube?Daliah answers these questions and more during this seminar.
The 2016 presidential campaign saw extreme hostility between candidates, the increased importance of social media campaigning, and the rise of “fake news.” These new phenomena coalesce to raise important legal questions. When does mudslinging become defamation? What legal responsibilities do social media services and users face when dealing with misinformation? How can these services monitor their high-profile users’ actions without provoking backlash?At this seminar, Daliah will explore the increasingly important intersection between politics and Internet Law.
Building a new website for your business, or overhauling an existing but outdated site? Unless you’re especially tech-savvy, you’re probably planning on outsourcing the work--but if you aren’t properly prepared, using a web developer can cause more problems than it solves. What if the developer quits midway through the project, reuses the code to build a site for a competitor, or leaves and steals your ideas?Daliah represents dozens of small businesses and has seen their web development process go well and not so well. This seminar is a chance for business owners to review best practices and potential pitfalls.
