With the law, what you don’t know can hurt you, so protect yourself, your company, and be informed. The website Xanga was fined $1 million for COPPA violations, for repeatedly allowing children under 13 to sign up for the service without getting their parent's consent.
Join the Social Media Club of Los Angeles as we bring in legal experts to discuss copyright, COPPA, DMCA, privacy, liability, defamation, take-down notices, terms of service and more.
We'll be hearing from:

Matt Neco - General Council at DocStoc
Alan Friel - Chairperson, Edwards Wilman's Media and Technology Practice
Daniel Stuart - Music Industry Attorney
Michael Overing - Moderator, attorney and adjunct professer at USC Annenberg
Topics covered will include:
- Privacy: What information are you obliged to protect and what happens if the information is revealed?
- COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act): How to deal with children's privacy on your site.
- DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) - How can you protect yourself from hefty fees, lawsuits or even criminal prosecution due to copyright violations and get others to stop using your content without permission?
- What to do when you receive a takedown notice?
- What is Safe Harbor?
