Social Media: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly for Municipalities

Oct 13, 2010

Written from a legal perspective, this presentation given at the 75th annual conference of the International Municipal Lawyers Association provides advice to municipal attorneys in developing a coherent, legal and useful social media policy for local governments. Citing Supreme Court cases, technology think-tank reports, U.S. Copyright law and anecdotes from individual localities, the authors attempt to develop a social and legal framework that will allow municipalities to take advantage of the social media craze that has swept the internet while shielding them from issues of libel, privacy, copyright and other potential pitfalls of the platform.
