Helping Clients Maximize Social Media’s Potential

While Minimizing And Wisely Navigating Risk

Social media is a broad and ever-changing category of technologies that has been a prominent driver of change in the 21st century. Whether it is stalwarts like Meta’s Facebook and Instagram or newer entrants like ByteDance’s TikTok and the meteoric rise it experienced, one thing is certain: the potential social media holds is immense. Whether in the context of social media’s power to catapult a business to heights never seen as possible or on the flipside to inflict immense damage, the network effects of the technology are dynamic and broadly applicable regardless of sector. With so much potential, there is naturally a plethora of legal considerations that come with social media use. Some of the most notable areas of the law that arise in the context of social media include marketing campaign agreements (such as for influencer marketing), sweepstakes law, privacy law, intellectual property law (generally copyright and trademark), defamation law, and dispute resolution (between platforms and users as well as among users). As social media lawyers, RICHT assists clients with maximizing the potential social media offers while working to minimize risk and navigate disputes if they arise.
