Covfefe Talk: Social Media Ethics Rules for 2019

Recording: Covfefe Talk: Social Media Ethics Rules for 2019, Mar 16, 2019


In a world where Facebook plans to police the truth and the U.S. President regularly gets Twitter-trolled by Merriam-Webster, what do social media and entertainment lawyers need to know about the latest ethics rules and cases in 2019? This presentation will be a frank and lively roundup of new ethics rules and decisions from around the US that flesh out common use cases in entertainment and social media law, both for lawyers and their clients. The discussion will draw on cases in the news, review the most significant ethics rule changes in jurisdictions that follow the ABA model ethics rules and those that don't (hello California!) and cover best practices for dealing with commonly-recurring ethics issues for entertainment and social media lawyers and clients.
