RAIN 11/23: Law firm to answer broadcasters' questions on social media legal issues

Posted on: 11/23/2009

DAVIS WRIGHT TREMAINE TO COVER ISSUES OF PRIVACY, DEFAMATION, LIABILITY IN ONLINE SEMINARS

Industry law firm Davis Wright Tremaine will offer two free online seminars to help answer broadcasters’ questions when it comes to the tricky legal issues of social media sites. According to attorney and Davis Wright Tremaine partner David Oxenford, the seminars will cover privacy issues, employer liabilities, defamation, social media policies and more. “While these seminars are not directed exclusively to broadcasters, they will address topics that broadcasters will find helpful in answering their questions on the use of social media,” Oxenford writes (here).

Attorneys Bob Blackstone and Thomas Burke will host the online seminars on December 9 and December 15. The seminars are free, but registration is required (here). More information can be found here.

MORE PRAISE FOR SONOS, THIS TIME FROM NYT’S POGUE

The New York Times’ David Pogue recently spent some time with Sonos’ ZonePlayer S5 wireless speaker (RAIN coverage here), finding it to be a satisfyingly low-cost way to build a multi-room music system. “It’s a pretty giddy feeling…I was a multiroom maestro, starting and stopping music in two distant rooms, all from the privacy of my breakfast nook,” he writes. “Better yet, two taps let you tap into the Sonos’s menu of 25,000 podcasts and Internet radio stations (including Pandora and Last.fm). Christmas music, anyone? Kiddy tunes? Neo-grunge? It’s all there.”

He continues, “The Sonos S5 may not be just what the doctor ordered for everyone, especially in recessionary times. But $400 is a reasonable price for the S5’s size, sound, portability, control, refinement and pure pleasure.” Check out his full review here.
