• Your employee finds a picture on the Internet that perfectly illustrates an article that you are posting on your website. Can you use the picture on your website without getting permission? How about on your Twitter feed or Facebook page?
• You want to feature a YouTube video in your TV news. Is there any issue with doing that?
• You’ve paid ASCAP and BMI for rights to play a song over the air and on your web stream. You also archive and podcast your morning drive show, do you need to pay ASCAP and BMI again?
• You had a local band come into your studio to play a set on-air. They play two of their own songs and one cover song. Can you archive the show on-demand on your website?
• A station listener posts some nasty comments on your station's facebook page. Can you be liable?
• Why do many celebrities have “#ad” following many of their social media posts? Is that something my station needs to think about?
These are some of the questions that will be answered by David Oxenford, MAB’s Washington attorney, and the answers may surprise you!
This seminar will deal with legal issues that a broadcaster may face exploiting new digital delivery systems, including a discussion of music licensing, legal issues that arise in social networking, other copyright and trademark issues, privacy concerns and other government regulations that can affect your internet and other digital operations.
