"Internet Law"

Speaker:   Joy Butler

Join us for a special joint meeting with BDPA.

The "long arm of the law" reaches even into the realm of the Internet. For our joint February presentation with BDPA, Joy Butler will present a discussion on how the law governs Internet activities and how that can affect us. Issues that may be covered include:
  • What can I do if someone uses my creative work online without my permission?
  • Can I be fired for my internet activities?
  • Can I mention people by name on my website, blog, Facebook account, etc?
  • At what point does my negative online review about a company or product cross the line from legal to not-so-legal?
  • Am I safe if I post my negative review anonymously?
  • What can I do about negative information posted online about me?
  • I'm very dissatisfied with the service I received from a local business. Can I build a website all about how bad this company is?
  • Is it okay for me to post a review about a product on my blog if the manufacturer gave me a free copy of the product?
  • Do websites know more about me than I think they know? How do websites get information about me if I don't give it to them?
  • Don't websites need my permission to track my online activity and store personal information about me?
  • How can I protect my online privacy?

Potential members and guests are welcome at our monthly meetings.  Come and network with your IT peers.
