Fair Use and IP Infringement on Social Media: Policing and Protecting Licenses, Copyright, and Trademark Rights
A live 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE course will explain to counsel when fair use protects sharing content on social media sites and when it crosses the line into unauthorized infringement. The panel will outline steps for counsel to advise companies on monitoring and protecting against unauthorized use of their brands and social media content.
- IP infringement risks companies face from social media
- When is the use of marks and copyrights online fair use?
- Strategies for protecting marks and copyrights in social media
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What are best practices to proactively protect brands from infringement by social media site users without losing the marketing advantages?
- Can IP owners pursue social media users who impermissibly post, pin, or share content for infringement based on other users (individually or en masse) re-posting that item?
- What are the crucial first steps that counsel can advise businesses to take after identifying alleged IP infringement by a social media user?
