Join us for a special joint meeting with Black Data Processing Associates (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?
