Do you ever wonder about the legal liabilities of participating in social media? When it comes to the law, what you don’t know can hurt you. We have invited Travis Crabtree, a lawyer who practices law in technology, marketing and media. This is a great opportunity to pick the brain of one of the most knowledgeable attorney’s in town on social media law without paying an hourly rate.

We will delve into several areas of law that we think you should know about, and we will leave plenty of time for your questions as well. We will also talk about trends and concerns in online law.

A few of the questions we will explore include:

• What is my liability for passing on fake news?
• What do I need to do/know to run a contest online?
• How do I get and protect my copyright and trademarks?
• Do I even need a trademark if I have a small business, program or side project to my main business?
• If someone uses my content, what actions can I take?
• When can I use other people’s content?
• What about online endorsements, what are the legal requirements for those, and what constitutes an endorsement #sponsored?
• If our site is hacked and customer info gets taken, what is our liability?
• If I am attacked online, what are my legal options?
• Can I legally protect my privacy online?
• Why do I need a Privacy Policy and Terms of Service on my website?

Now you? What legal questions do you have that Travis might be able to answer?
