Topic: A Legal Guide to Managed Services: The Legal Issues of Social Networking
Hosted by: Attorney Richard Santalesa
Attorney Bradley Gross, and Eric Shorr of PC Troubleshooters, Inc.
The booming era of ‘social networking’ has opened a truly grand new frontier for inexpensive but effective ways of marketing services, reaching potential customers and supporting an existing client base. Sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Biznik, Orkut, and as new offerings popping up weekly, have taken the web by storm and captured headlines. But along with the promise, social networking also raises a range of old and new legal issues, including pitfalls and associated liabilities that span the legal spectrum.
In this webinar Attorney Richard Santalesa, Attorney Bradley Gross, and Eric Shorr of PC Troubleshooters, Inc. will discuss recommendations, best practices and considerations to keep in mind, both before and during any social networking effort, to ensure you maximize your return while limiting chances for costly legal liabilities.
Among the topics to be discussed are: smart management of your social networking policies, groups, users and employees, whether to allow third party content to be posted, defamation and other tort traps, employment policy links, as well as other timely issues that every smart MSP can use in their real world practices.
