Doing Business online brings with it a whole new set of legal considerations. Understanding the potential for harm to your business or customers is critical to maintaining online success. If you’ve wondered about the legalities of online transactions, product delivery failures, use of social media, or any of the dozens of other things you do online every day, you’ll want to hear Dallas Attorney Mazin Sbaiti’s presentation in September.
Mazin comes to DFWSEM on Wednesday 13th September to present Incurring and Remedying Online Injuries, a primer in the most common legal considerations encountered in the online world.
Mazin Sbaiti is an experienced litigator who practices in Dallas, and has a deep understanding of the particular legal difficulties and responsibilities faced by those publishing and doing business online.
Are you worried by the “Gripe” site phenomenon?
Mazin will discuss the “Gripe” sites such as Ripoff Report, Pissed Consumer and others, explain online defamation, and walk you through legislative considerations like the Online Decency Act etc. You’ll find out whether litigation works, and what motivates “gripe” site publishers to do what they do.
Understanding online bullying and victimization
You’ll learn about duty of care, what courts can and can’t offer, and whether immunity exists. Some hard issues will be covered when Mazin answers the question “Can a website owner be liable for rape, abduction, murder, or suicide?”
What exactly can you use online?
In the latter part of his presentation Mazin will explain the intricacies of online contracts made and broken, Copyright and Trademark protections in the digital realm, copyright theft, and the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.
Critical information for every person involved in online publishing or business. Whether you are a business owner, writer, editor, marketer, social media strategist, community manager, blogger, or work in any other area of digital representation, you must not miss this. Spending an hour with Mazin at DFWSEM in September could have a profound impact on your online activities.
