Important Social Media Liability Update 
by Media Law Attorney Mark Fiedelholtz
 
Here's Why Most Social Media Policies Don't Protect You In Court

Courts reject policies that are copied from another organization and aren't enforced with specialized mass media law training.
 
 

  
 "Courts view social media as high liability broadcasting platforms. Employers must shift the training form general labor law warnings to
in-depth mass media law posting strategies."

                               

3 Myths That Cost You Big Legal Damages

 

Myth 1. We don't need an outside expert, our attorney can conduct the training..

 

Truth:  Courts find it unreasonable to assume a busy in-house attorney could produce the same in-depth training as an expert electronic media law trainer.

 

Myth 2: We haven't been sued yet, so we don't need to offer specialized training.

Truth: Social media lawsuits are front page news. This means you knew or should have known an employee would make a mistake on social media.

 

Myth 3: We have budget cuts and can't afford a media law expert.

 

Truth: Courts have little tolerance for penny wise and pound foolish people who claim they can't afford a $295 DVD program, but can pay a $500,000 libel claim.
