This CLE webinar will provide guidance for counsel on when sharing content on social media sites is protected by fair use 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 content on social media.

Description

The numbers are staggering—Pinterest (150 million monthly users), Instagram (600 million monthly users), Twitter (317 million monthly users), YouTube (1 billion+ users), and Facebook (1.86 billion+ monthly users)—and are increasing exponentially. Social media users are sharing, tweeting, pinning and posting a variety of intellectual property, including pictures, videos, articles and more, often without permission of the owner.

On Oct. 16, 2015, the Second Circuit held Google’s unauthorized book-scanning program was noninfringing fair use of copyrighted works. Counsel to IP owners must understand the legal implications of this decision on online sharing of their intellectual property. When is posting of material on social media shielded by fair use and when is it just infringement?

Counsel must monitor and protect their IP but also must balance pursuing infringement against the value of viral marketing.

Listen as our authoritative panel of IP attorneys examines whether use of trademarks and copyrights is fair use and the risk of infringement that companies face from social media, and offers strategies for protecting marks and copyrights and monitoring and minimizing the infringement risk.

Outline

  1. Risk companies face from social media
  2. When use of marks and copyrights online is fair use
  3. Strategies for protecting marks and copyrights in social media

Benefits

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 key first steps that counsel can advise businesses to take when alleged IP infringement by a social media user is identified?
