Social media includes a vast array of web-based and mobile technologies and forums – social media sites (ex., Facebook), blogs (ex., Twitter), content communities (ex., Vimeo, YouTube), virtual worlds and gaming (ex., Second Life, World of Warcraft), etc., that are constantly changing and evolving. Although social media options seem almost limitless, there are real legal limits and pitfalls that apply to these communication tools, including:

Copyright & Trademark Infringement

Defamation

Disclaimers (e.g., Paid Endorsements)

Linkage to Third-Party Sites

Regulatory Compliance (e.g., Truth in Advertising)

Rights of Privacy & Publicity
