IP Issues in Social Media – April 12, 2011 Meeting

CincyIP Presents:
IP Issues in Social Media-
What’s New Today (It Will Be Different Tomorrow)

April 12, 2011

11:45am – 1:30pm

The Cincinnatian Hotel
This course has been approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio Commission on Continuing Legal Education for 1.0 total CLE hour(s) instruction.

Social Media Law is one of the most rapidly developing areas of practice in the intellectual property field. With the explosion of Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, a plethora of traditional intellectual property issues have been injected into an entirely new medium with little guidance on how those issues are to be treated. Like Internet Law before it, Social Media Law is evolving in real time, as the major players in this new industry innovate and change on the fly, forcing practitioners to stay closely tied to their every move lest they risk falling behind the curve. This panel discussion will highlight some of the current issues in Social Media Law, with the caveat that while the answers given may be right today, they may change tomorrow as the social media community continues to evolve.

The panel will be moderated by J. Michael Hurst (Of Counsel, Keating Muething & Klekamp PLL) and will include:

• Steven W. Caldwell (Counsel – IP, The Procter & Gamble Company)
• Sarah Otte Graber (Partner, Wood, Herron & Evans LLP)
• Geoffrey L. Oberhaus (Partner, Dinsmore & Shohl LLP)

PRICES (including lunch):
• $20 for Members (includes 1 Hr Ohio CLE)
• $30 Non-Member with CLE
• $20 Non-Member without CLE
• $15 Students and Full-Time Academics
