About Social Media Law: A Handbook of Case and Use

From business law to entertainment law, from criminal law to employment law, social media continues to touch upon many facets of the legal field--any savvy lawyer should have a working knowledge of the social media questions that may arise in their practice, and know where to find precedent and answers.

Social Media Law examines social and new media issues through the lens of law and policy. With the recent explosion in social networking and the use of social media and new media, it is essential for attorneys and law students to understand the trends in these new platforms when advising clients of the potential risks and pitfalls of social media and social networking use.

In six comprehensive sections--copyright and fair use, freedom of speech, business law, in the courtroom, privacy, and cybercrime--Social Media Law addresses the current and pressing issues in this dynamic area of law:

  • privacy, anonymity, and accountability in the context of social networking
  • sources and privacy issues faced by journalists
  • the future of journalism and publishing in the context of new media
  • the intersection of social media and the First Amendment
  • social media issues in employment law
  • social media and education law
  • copyright and fair use in the context of new media
  • peer-to-peer file sharing
  • the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and the proposed PROTECT IP Act
  • new media and its impact on mass communications laws
  • social media and litigationfrom tweeting jurors (and jurors who tweet) to messaging witnesses to friending judges
  • bloggers, user-created content, citizen journalism, and the like
  • social media-related cybercrime and its prosecution
  • the intersection of social medial law and new business models, and implications on business law and contract law
  • virtual law practice and the role of social and new media in representing clients, specifically in the business of law practice and in issues of professionalism
