Does Social Networking present legal issues to users?

Find out all about it at an upcoming program

The Fairfield Public Library Small Business Strategies series will focus on "The Legal Issues of Social Networking" at 7 p.m. Feb. 15 in the Rotary Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.

"Social networking has opened a new frontier for inexpensive but effective ways of marketing services, reaching potential customers and supporting an existing client base," organizers said in a statement. "Sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace also raise a range of old and new legal issues, including pitfalls and liabilities that span the legal spectrum."

Topics to be discussed at the event include: a round-up of legal issues you should consider before and during any social networking, such as copyright and trademarks infringement, conditions in social network site terms of use, third party content issues, potential employment policy issues, defamation and other tort traps, and more, the statement said.

The presenter for the session is attorney Richard L. Santalesa, Information Law Group., shown, who "has generously given his time and expertise to make this series possible," the statement said.
He is admitted to the Bar in New York, Connecticut and  counsels clients in technology-based issues, including the areas of electronic commerce and internet issues, privacy and data security, software and website development, and more, the statement said.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for informal networking with other small business owners.
The series is designed to generate a discussion with local businesses and concentrate on their specific needs, the statement said.
All events are free and open to the public, but registration is required.
