The law is changing as fast as your job description. Are you keeping up?

Join us for ASME's 2017 Legal Briefing for Magazine Editors to learn about the latest legal developments affecting your brand. In a fast-paced and interactive day-long program, we'll discuss what you need to know to keep your magazine—and writers, photographers, bloggers and promotion and marketing staffs—out of court and on top of the competition.

TWO SESSIONS

Business Law for Magazine Editors (Morning Session: 9:30am to 12:30pm; breakfast will be provided)
Topics include: running compliant and effective social sweeps and promotions; protecting your brand and content online; FTC endorsement and promotions update; legal issues in responsive marketing; collecting and using reader information; designing mobile apps; and the effects of the new overtime rules on your relationship with employees.

Topics include: the legal implications of native advertising; what to watch for when using social media; guidelines for live-streaming video; navigating music rights; fact, fiction and the imperiled role of the fact-checker; the evolving definition of "fair use" in the digital context; and, of course, the latest tales from the trenches about protecting your magazine from libel and invasion of privacy claims.
