About Flash Mob Law

As flash mobs gain increasing prevalence  whether as a fun and irreverent group activity, protest strategy, or advertising/promotional pitch  there is a great need for organizers and participants alike to be aware of the various legal issues they may encounter. These laws cover a surprising array of categories, ranging from criminal, entertainment, and employment law to issues of intellectual property and First Amendment rights. Flash Mob Law: The Legal Side of Planning and Participating in Pillow Fights, No Pants Rides, and Other Shenanigans is the first book of its kind to discuss the legal side of flash mobs and presents the reader with everything he or she needs to know about where the law stands on all issues related to the planning and execution of flash mobs.

In addition to discussing these laws, this book also addresses the question of what is and what isnt a flash mob. Much to the annoyance of flash mob organizers and participants, the media has hijacked the term to describe criminal and even violent group activities. Flash Mob Law: The Legal Side of Planning and Participating in Pillow Fights, No Pants Rides, and Other Shenanigans rights this wrong by describing the actual components and intent of a flash mob, both of which run counter to criminal motivation. Flash mobs are meant to be fun and solely for the entertainment of the participants and their unsuspecting audience  whether an impromptu pillow fight, a dance routine, or a ride on public transportation sans pants.

Flash Mob Law: The Legal Side of Planning and Participating in Pillow Fights, No Pants Rides, and Other Shenanigans is a must-read for anyone involved in the creation, promotion, and execution of flash mobs.
