Legal Briefing for Magazine Editors 2012 – Keep Up with The Changing Rules to Keep Your Magazine Out of Court

November 28, 2012

From photo rights to Facebook, sweepstakes to sponsored content, from hiring interns to hiring celebrities, magazine editors have more to worry about these days than just libel. In this presentation to the American Society of Magazine Editors, Prince Lobel Media Law partners Robert A. Bertsche and Peter J. Caruso II will discuss:

Business Law for Magazine Editors (Morning Session) Topics include: Negotiating state-of-the-art contracts with employees, freelancers and vendors; protecting your copyright and trademarks online; five rules for conducting promotions and events; talent and celebrity contributor agreements; guidelines for mobile content and apps; why you should revisit your privacy policy; and whether it’s still safe to use interns

Journalism Law for Magazine Editors (Afternoon Session) Topics include: What to watch for when repurposing content; using celebrity names and photos; defamation by tweet (and other social media perils); six guidelines for publishing reader-submitted material; common-sense rules for policing the hazy “fair use” line; and what you need to know about Europe’s privacy laws.
