Agenda

1:00 - 2:30 p.m. Eastern

Partner Michael Conway and Associate Marilee Miller will be presenting a Lorman Education live audio conference titled "Defamation Law and the Internet."

Defamation law attempts to reconcile competing First Amendment interests with the need for protection of reputation. The Internet, an infinitely flexible medium that brought mass communication to the public, offers new challenges for traditional principles of defamation law, which are relevant to every practitioner.

This live audio conference will review these traditional defamation principles and consider the ways that they have been applied in the online context. A defamatory publication in an online medium can take on forms never before considered. The duration of a publication can last from a few seconds to remaining accessible online indefinitely. The Internet knows no geographic boundary, which can present unique jurisdictional issues. New and different protections may be available to the publishers of defamatory material. Traditional remedies, when applied in the Internet context, may be inadequate.

Defamation law is applicable to every industry, making this audio conference critical for practitioners in every field. You will gain an understanding of core defamation law concepts, guidance about the ways that those concepts have been applied to the Internet, and insights regarding developing issues.
