Event Details

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:

 

Lisa Borodkin - Entertainment Attorney & Blogger

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?
  • How can you protect yourself from litigation for defamation and other claims arising from content on your site? 
  • What are Terms of Service and Privacy Policies and why should you have them on your site?
  • What other means of protecting yourself and your company exist?
