Social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, and Flickr, which allow users to connect with one another and share information, have become vital tools for professionals in the news and strategic communication fields. But, to what extent do communicators put themselves at risk for defamation and privacy lawsuits by using these tools, and what rights do communicators have when other users talk about them on social networks? How can an entity maintain control of intellectual property issues, such as sharing of copyrighted videos and photographs, consistent with the developing law in this area? How and when can journalists and publicists use these tools to do their jobs without endangering their employers or clients? These questions and more will be addressed in this edited volume, which brings together eleven media law scholars to write about current issues like cyberbullying, sexting, copyright, and wikileaks. Students and professional communicators alike need to be aware of laws relating to defamation, privacy, intellectual property, and government regulation, amongst other topics--and this guidebook is here to help them navigate social media's tricky legal terrain.
