This morning I presented to the Association of Legal Administrators. They asked me to give the view as a lawyer, law firm client, former legal administrator and blogger on what law firms should know about web 2.0. I also mixed risks, policies and compliance issues. The crowd was a diverse bunch in terms of how they use the tools personally and at their law firms. Here are the materials, with references and links to tools I mentioned in the presentation. Here is a link to my social media policies… [read post]

Congress may weaken the 1988 Video Privacy Protection Act because Netflix wants to build a Facebook application that may enable consumers to more easily share their movie choices and opinions. HR2471 may only benefit Netflix, Facebook, and third parties who may access the data. Netflix and Facebook users can already share their movie likes and dislikes online without any new legislation. Therefore, is there a reason to weaken a law that has protected the privacy of those living in the United States… [read post]

I was recently contacted by Marcela Monroy, a fellow lawyer who is furthering her legal education by studying for a Master in Legal Sociology. As part of her studies, she has a created an "academic survey to explore the impact of social networks (forums, blogs, chats, message boards, etc) and the way people access legal information regarding any issue or injurious experience."I encourage everyone who reads this blog to take the survey. It takes a few minutes of your time and it will assist a fellow… [read post]

Having foresight and advising clients on how to successfully navigate potential legal risks is what lawyers are paid to do. On January 10, 2011, I made 10 social media law predictions for the year and nine of them have come true; the tenth one appears that it will be realized within the next couple of months. In no particular order, below are some of my social media law predictions for 2012:1) Social Media account ownership issues will increase. 2) State Legislatures and/or the courts in the… [read post]

Maryland's Division of Corrections (DOC) has suspended its policy that requested applicants "voluntarily" provide their Facebook user name and password as part of a background check. According to the Washington Post, the policy was approximately a year old.In general, I believe it may be an invasion of privacy for an employer to ask for your personal social media user names and passwords. However, there may be some positions where requesting a social media user name and password may be acceptable.… [read post]

Cleveland's City Council continues in its misguided attempt to create vague and unconstitutional social media criminal law. Cleveland's City Council is trying again to specifically criminalize the use of electronic media to create flash mobs.This past summer, Cleveland's City Council tried to regulate the use of social media and fortunately for the citizens of Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson vetoed the flawed legislation. As I told the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Cleveland should utilize its resources to… [read post]

I have previously discussed Cleveland's prior misguided attempts to create ambiguous social media law. Cleveland has finally passed a law that may criminalize social media. This new ordinance (see page 25, sections 1392-11, 1393-11 and 1394-11) that allegedly is aimed at trying to curb flash mobs is very troubling and may create unanticipated problems that were not envisioned by its sponsors. Will Cleveland police officers during a Terry Stop and Frisk check to see if someone is carrying a digital… [read post]
