Social Media

Technology has created many new channels and mediums for businesses and marketers to reach customers. Traditional advertising is now taking a back seat to digital, highly-targeted efforts to connect with consumers on their favourite digital platforms.

This modern use of social media has created a series of sophisticated legal considerations that include:

  • Information sharing and usage
  • Digital content ownership
  • Consumer endorsements
  • Use of copyrighted material and trademarks
  • Domain name disputes
