Privacy, Social Media, Texting: Legal Update and Practical Considerations

Mobile and Internet communications are key to reaching and engaging consumers and facilitating brand loyalty, but posting, tweeting, dialing, and texting are also subject to a thorny patchwork of laws and government scrutiny. This CLE, from attorneys who have been in the trenches with the FTC, State AGs, and with private litigants, will provide key background and discussion on the US legal landscape, from the latest privacy and social media issues, to TCPA and the Telemarketing Sales Rule, to the current and potential future impact of the Spokeo Supreme Court case. We will also touch on some comparisons with international law, and finish with best practice considerations.
