- Not available
The second edition of Social Media Law is substantially updated, reflecting new case law and legislative developments. Social Media Law examines social and new media issues through the lens of law and policy. With the recent explosion in social networking and the use of social media and new media, it is essential for attorneys and law students to understand the trends in these new platforms when advising clients of the potential risks and pitfalls of social media and social networking use.
In six comprehensive sections--copyright and fair use, freedom of speech, business law, in the courtroom, privacy, and cybercrime--Social Media Law addresses the current and pressing issues in this dynamic area of law:
Privacy, anonymity, and accountability in the context of social networking
Sources and privacy issues faced by journalists
The future of journalism and publishing in the context of new media
The intersection of social media and the First Amendment
Social media issues in employment law
Social media and education law
Copyright and fair use in the context of new media
Peer-to-peer file sharing
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and the proposed PROTECT IP Act
New media and its impact on mass communications laws
Social media and litigation-from "tweeting" jurors (and jurors who "tweet") to messaging witnesses to "friending" judges
Bloggers, user-created content, "citizen journalism," and the like
Social media-related cybercrime and its prosecution
The intersection of social medial law and new business models, and implications on business law and contract law
Virtual law practice and the role of social and new media in representing clients, specifically in the business of law practice and in issues of professionalism
The new edition will cover a wide range of recent court decisions; privacy issues regarding employers and employees on social media; and social media directives issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission and Federal Drug Administration.
