Pro Bono Partnership Intellectual Property & Social Media - What are the Legal Rules of the Road?

Date Start End Location   Event Registration
27 Nov 2012 10:30 AM 3:30 PM DLA Piper LLP
One Atlantic Center, 1201 West Peachtree Street, Suite 2800
Atlanta, GA 30309

Every nonprofit has a great deal invested in its name, program and reputation.  Having a strong presence in the community allows a nonprofit to advocate on behalf of its mission and to assist its clients.  However, changes in technology have redefined the definition of community.  Now a nonprofit's community is defined by more than a physical address.  Community also includes the network of individuals and organizations connected to your nonprofit through the internet.

The session will give an overview of the following:

  • How social media can impact an organization's brand,
  • How a nonprofit may successfully exploit new media to increase awareness and to raise resources, without afoul of other organization's intellectual property,
  • How to protect your organization against those that would use the Internet and other social media to exploit your organization's name, reputation and other intellectual property, and
  • Explore an organization's responsibility with respect to its employees' and volunteers' use of the Internet and other social media.
