"Avoiding Legal Pitfalls When Using On-Line Social Media" for the Indiana Grantmakers Alliance, in collaboration with various State Grantmakers Alliances

This event has already occurred.

This national webinar will cover legal issues that can arise for foundations and nonprofits using online social media (e.g., social networks, blogs, wikis, and audio/video depositories). Learn how to use these tools to advance your organization's mission while managing associated legal liability through employee and member guidelines and policies, user agreements, disclaimers, licenses, and other risk allocation strategies.

While this is a complex, diverse, and still-developing area of law, it is critical for nonprofit organizations to understand these basics in order to avoid costly mistakes and effectively deploy social media to advance their missions and goals.
