This session will provide an overview of the primary legal traps that can arise for nonprofits on the web and with other electronic communications. While this is a complex, diverse and still-developing area of the law, it is critical for nonprofits to learn how to identify, assess and manage their web-related legal risks in order to avoid costly — and sometimes easily-avoidable — mistakes.

Learn About:

  • Legal issues related to online tools such as social media, networks, blogs, wikis, audio and video postings, websites, and virtual trade shows
  • How to draft clear employee and member guidelines, agreements, disclaimers and click-and-accept licenses
  • Managing data to prevent privacy and security risks
  • Risk allocation strategies, such as how to manage liability issues through the effective use of indemnification and insurance
  • Covered legal topic areas will include defamation, harassment and other accusations of bad behavior; copyright and trademark protection and infringement, including fair use; privacy issues involving employees, web users, and others; and employment-related concerns, among others.

Speakers:
Jeffrey Tenenbaum, Esq., Partner and Chair of the Nonprofit Organizations Practice, Venable LLP
Lisa Hix, Esq., Attorney, Venable LLP
