What Owners Need to Know About the Legal Consequences of Social Media Use
As small business owners themselves, attorneys Tara M. Murphy (Neon Esquire, LLC) and Evon M. Spangler (Spangler and de Stefano, PLLP) know what a blessing and a curse social media can be to a brand. And unfortunately, lately, they have seen more of the later. When customers and competitors air their accusations in the court of public opinion as opposed to a court of law- things can quickly spiral out of control. Reputations can be damaged in a matter of days or even hours. Whether comments are made publicly on a business owners’ personal page or privately in a professional group on Facebook, liability for defamation may follow. Join both women for a free information session where they will discuss the realities of being a business owner in the age of social media. Topics include:
-The impact of trademark and copyright use on your social media
-How to respond to negative comments or reviews on your social media accounts
-How social media posts can lead to defamation lawsuits
-How to protect your business’ social media postings when they are done by an employee or a third party
-The consequences of reposting another person’s content
