I’m finding now that clients—across industries—are facing new risk in the arena of intellectual property infringement owing to their use of social media. As they use social media for marketing, they might incorporate online content owned by others. And the owners of the content are increasingly assertive about protecting their IP rights. I work with my clients to find ways to leverage the power of social media while also keeping them safe from infringement claims.
